Play The Game

I’m glad she lost

It doesn’t do

To be winning all the time

It is a game after all

And losing is not a crime


Media spotlight

Blinding light

All the world obsessed

Places pressure on a girl

Just trying to play her best


Makes me think of Elvis

Quiet southern boy

Exploded on the music scene

It gave him simple joy

But crazy world reaction

Caused his life to spin

Never settled down again

Treated as god – a sin


Following Bolton’s

Good for the soul

Don’t get peas above sticks

Keeps you humble

Down to earth

Remembering Freddie Hill’s tricks


So play the game

You play today

Win or lose or draw

And don’t forget to laugh and smile

A game is for one and all
