Lyrics

HAVIN' A BALL
(Knable/Allen)

KEY: A TEMPO: 94

Every Tuesday nite congregate at the field-house on the edge of town
The switch goes on about 6 p.m. Takes a few minutes to light that old gym
Tape up -- warm up -- ready to play
Still need to win can't touch the rim but sneak a few 3s in
--------------- Swiiiiiisssshhhhhh---------------------

Tough to get up and down the floor
Sweating beer from the nite before
Boy our bodies are going be sore
Why we even keepin' score
Our daddies taught us never to quit
Oh man we're feeling it!
Might argue all the calls
But hey; we're having a ball - We're havin' a ball

No trophies to hang on the wall just a cheap tee shirt if we win it all
It's not about being some super star it's more about the pride that hasn't died
Time out; clock won't stop; tick tickin' tickin' away
Still need to win can't touch rim but sneak a few 3s in
--------------- Swiiiiiiiissssshhhhhh---------------------

CHORUS

Bill's a lawyer in our town; he plays center low and down
Tom's a point guard, runs the mill, passes off to his brother Bill
Joe's forward as you can get; lost his C wife and home bookin' bets
Me I'm still unemployed, but these D games help to fill the void
