The Pickleball Song L

Story Behind The Song

I went out to California on a trip to see my family and made it into a little musical tour. One of the things I wanted to do was play pickleball with my sister, Fran. We played nearly every day I was out there. I was inspired to write this song while staying in her guest room. I hired Lena Sanden (Sweden) to record the vocals on this version of the song because I wanted a younger (more pop) sounding voice than my own. I think she did a great job! Special thanks to Jonah Atkinson who created the exciting track. Can you hear the pickleball hitting the paddle in the percussion spot at the end of the bridge? I brought my paddle and ball into the studio. He recorded the sound and put it into his computer so we could get real pickleball sounds in the song. I love it!

Lyrics

Well I get out to the courts about a quarter to nine

Paddle in my hand and I'm feelin' fine.

Stretchin' out my legs and I reach for the sky

Hollerin' "Let's pickle" when the sun starts to shine.


Well my buddies show up with their gear in tow

Yellow balls a bouncin' and we warm up slow

Now we're revvin' up so let's take it back

Winding up my swing and I give it a whack!


CHORUS ONE:

Let's pickle! Let's pickle!

We're young and we're old and we're fit.

Let's pickle! Let's pickle!

I just wanna pickle a bit!

Let's pickle! Let's pickle!

I wanna hear that ball crack!

Anyway you stack it I wanna whack it

I.....I got a pickle attack!

Now this games goes really fast, you got no time to think
You gotta be ready to run up and hit a dink
Zip back to the baseline before bounce number two
Keep this rally goin'; yeah you know it's good for you!

And there's a place on the court that you better steer clear!
Keep out of the kitchen; Got no food for you in here.
Some hit it crazy, make that yellow ball spin
Some come for fun and some are itchin' to win.

CHORUS TWO:
Let's pickle! Let's pickle!
A lob'll set you up for a kill.
Let's pickle! Let's pickle!
Whew! I got it back! What a thrill!
Let's pickle! Let's pickle!
I wanna hear that ball crack!
Any way you stack it, I just wanna whack it
I.....I got a pickle attack!

Some play singles; some play doubles and some'll do it all
We're playing in the winter, spring, summer and fall.
Some get out there early; some come after work at night.
Some say I'm addicted and I think they might be right!

BRIDGE: Paddles swingin' and wer're feeling fine
Everybody's laughin' and having a good time! (4 x)

CHORUS THREE:
Let's pickle! Let's pickle!
Does anybody new wanna play?
Let's pickle! Let's pickle!
I could stay out here all day!
Let's pickle! Let's pickle!
I wanna hear that ball crack!
Any way you stack it, I just wanna whack it.
I.....I got a pickle attack.
I.....I got a pickle attack!



a new look at pickle ball

Okay...I'm in!! Let's Pickle!! This is a high-energy, fun song that picks you up right from the get-go. Great rock-n-roll progressions and melodies help you to connect with this one right away. The rockin' guitar tracks are spot-on and the vocal is great for the tune... an almost Toni Basil-esque take... which is perfect for the tune! Great job!!
