12th man – marvellouse lyrics


alright fellas!
are you feeling funky? are you feeling hip?
give me a yo! (yo!)
i want everyone to move and groove and shake their funky things a little bit.
you got my guitar there, bill? (got it, yeah! here you are, richie)
let’s see what this baby can do.
let’s go!
yadadada yadadada
(you know, richie, you’re really are a marvellous guitarist)
you really like that do you tone? yeah!
think that’s tough?
yadadada alright! here we go!

welcome back here to the mcg,
or the gabba, or the wacca,
or the adelaide oval, or the scg
it doesn’t matter, where we are
down under in australia this summer
cause when it’s summer, in australia
if ya don’t like cricket, i can tell it’s a real b-mmer
that’s because cricket is the number one game in town
just ask anyone around
yo, boys!
from bondi in the east to across the bunbury in the west
from darwin to the dandenong
or whatever your address might be
you can see me on the t.v.
well, not just me, but the commentary team
they’re sort of my boys, if you know what i mean
you know, i thought captaining australia was a pretty tough job
but i can tell you, it’s absolutely nothing
compared to looking after this mob
lemme tell ya this, mornin’ bill and tony
(morning rich! morning all!)
and greg and ian (yes, morning rich!)
and our special guests soneji and tony c
(good morning!)
and of course there’s me
and we say
what a marvellous catch!
that’s a marvellous shot!
what a marvellous crowd, the victorians

c’mon fellas! let’s kick it!
we’re the commentary team and what we call the game
it’s marvellous! yes, everything is marvellous
because it’s marvellous
yes, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
that’s right, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s

(verse 2)
yes, indeed, it really is a marvellous effort
that you every summer night when mi head hits the pillow
i drifted off to sleep and i dreamed about leather (what?)
and will o’bill, and border, and booney, and deano, and moody, and taylor
just to name just a few of the super australian side for season 1991-92
(what about big merv?) yes, him too!
(he’s a hero, this man)
(oh, c’mon, turn it up, bolly, for it might be you)
(well, he has a lot of guts)
(well, he eats too much food)
hey, hey, you two! now it doesn’t really matter
look, n-body give a stuff if big merv is a little fatter
just as long as we’re thrashing those ?, or poms
or sri lanka, or the windies, it doesn’t matter where they’re from
for it might be india, south africa, zimbabwe, or new zealand
but if i don’t take a breath i reckon i might be keeling over soon
i’m trying carry on and do my best
(c’mon, richie, you can’t afford to take a rest)
oh, streuth!
(c’mon, richie, we’ll get you through it)
oh, gee!
(we know it’s hard, but you can do it)
ah, thanks a lot, fellas, think i’m okay
i’ll live another day to say
what a marvellous stroke!
and that’s a marvellous knock
what a marvellous throw
and that’s a marvellous below

c’mon everybody, cricket time!
we’re the commentary team and we reckon everything’s marvellous
(yeah yeah yeah)
yes, it’s marvellous!
that’s right, it’s marvellous
that’s right, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
you heard me, m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s

yes, indeed, it really is a marvellous effort that
my name is richie, and i am the king
i’m the king commentator, i’m the number one thing
and i’m a singer too, and i’m a jammer
and that’s when i become m.c. hammer
and i feel a solo coming on, bill
(do it, richie) yo!
(give it to me hard and fast, rich)
you got it, tone (oh, well played)
(make him some solo hits, cause he’s a guitar hero, this man)
what a marvellous match!
it’s a marvellous pitch!
what a marvellous game!

c’mon, i want to hear everybody
let’s really top it up
we’re the commentary team and we reckon everything’s marvellous
(everything is marvellous!)
everything’s marvellous!
everything’s marvellous!
you know, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
that’s right, m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
(marv-ah woah woah oh)
marvellous! marvellous!
could you background singers keep it down, please?
especially you, snowy
everything everything everything
everything’s marvellous! everything’s marvellous!
yes, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
spell it out, m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s

hey, hey, back off a bit curly
this is our song
everything everything everything everything everything everything everything everything
no, that’s not a stammer, that’s mcg hammer, bill!
(yo, richie)
yo yourself!
everything’s marvellous!
spell it out, m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
one more, m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
(you okay, rich?)
i think everything’s okay, tony
yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes, it’s marvellous
everything’s marvellous!
everything’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
i said, m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
yes, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
that’s right, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
everything’s marvellous!
everything’s marvellous!
everything’s marvellous!
everything’s marvellous!
everything’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
yes, it’s m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s
