An article about cricket! And it is on OEN! :)

I have never played cricket nor have I ever seen a game played. But I know a couple of cricket players now living in this country who are from India. Great guys.

Now I do know of a song about cricket which is a weird song; at least I think so. The song is "Cricket" and it is a Kinks' song written by Ray Davies, the lyrical genius of the Kinks. The Kinks have been my band going back to the 60's and they have recorded so many songs of which so many are great songs; but not "Cricket." Actually, I like the lyrics but not the music.

Not knowing what several terms from the song meant, I asked my friends to explain to me what are "googlies with leg breaks and offspin" and what is "lbw?"

Anyway, I don't know what you will think of the song but the lyrics are below with two videos of the song; one by I don't know who and the other by the kinks. Listen in at your own risk. :)

Having said that, maybe you will like the song.


Some people say that life is a game, well if this is so
I'd like to know the rules on which this game of life is based.
I know of no game more fitting than the age old game of cricket
It has honour, it has character and it's British.
Now God laid down the rules of life when he wrote those Ten Commandments
And to cricket those ten same rules shall apply.
Show compassion and self-righteousness and be honest above all
And come to God's call with bat and ball.

Now the Devil has a player and he's called the Demon Bowler,
He's shrewd, he's rude and he's wicked.
He is sent by Sinful Satan and he's out to take your wicket
And you know that that's not cricket.
He'll baffle you with googlies with leg breaks and offspin
But keep a level head and don't let that demon in.
So keep a straight bat at all times, let the Bible be your guide
And you'll get by, yes you'll get by.

All through your life he'll try to bowl you out
Beware the Demon bowler.
He's crafty and deceitful and he'll try to L.B.W.,
And bowl a maiden over.
The Devil takes the weak in spirit and so we must always be courageous
And remember that God is on your side.
So keep old Satan in your sights and play the straight and narrow line
And you'll get by, yes you'll get by.

Cricket - The Spivs Probably the earliest recorded choral version of a Kinks song. The original Kinks' version can be found on the album .Preservation Act 1.

OEN has a lot of Indian writers and readers. Thus cricket I guess.
