FOOTY by Jem                                                                     SURFING by Sol                                                THE SHIVERING SPARROW

Av Bulldogs and Sharks footy are my passion.            The waves are big, the waves are small               Poor little sparrow
Kickin’, passin’, try scorin’ and dashin’                          I’m never going to catch them all                        I hope you’re not in pain
Red and green socks, blue and white jersey                Oh look that wave just crashed                             shiver, shiver, shivering
On the field we show NO MERCY!                                and I just got totally smashed                                in the pouring rain
But now the footy season is off                                      It was about four foot or so                                  Dear little sparrow
No training or game day, we’ll all turn soft                 I turned my board around too slow                      Stuck out in the storm
Instead of tackles, scoreboards and cheers                   I guess I’m not quite yet a pro                             I wish that I could bring you in
All over the beaches and shire are tears                          maybe in a day or so                                           where it’s nice and warm.
But wait….“there is hope” our coach declares                                                                                                Come on little sparrow
90 more days lockdown if you dare                                                                                                                  I’ll dry you off you’ll see
Then the whistle will blow, boots will go on                                                                                                     I’ll get you nice and cosy
And you’ll be chanting with mates your old footy song                                                                                 as warm as you can be                                                                                                                                                                                                Fly little sparrow up into the tree                                                                                                                                                                                                           Bye little sparrow,                                                                                                                                                                                                                  go and be free
