You say you like football?
Oh, um, well I do too!
In fact, I just saw Mark Mc Gwire play!
And all the time I was thinkin' of you
So, ya like the Broncos?
I just saw 'em on TV
And lemme tell ya, that Wayne Gretzcky
He really impressed me!
You say that you watch Air Force?
Mm hhm, they're really phat!
In fact, that home run . . .
Well it was all that!
I mean, football!
Dude, it's the game!
Not like baseball, or ice hockey
None are the same!
I tried to tell you
About the game I saw the other day
You just looked at me like I was crazy
Rolled your eyes and walked away
Then I went to the library
And checked out some spiffy books
And then I realized that football, didn't involve bats or pucks
As I stopped to take a closer look.
I just stood there, frozen
Wishing I could un-say all the things I said
Recalling the sounds of stupidity
That I got stuck in your head
Now I know the real dope
About football and goals and such
And let me tell you!
I wasn't missin' much
But as long as I'm around you
I talk about football on end
Hopin' you'll notice me
So we can be more than friends
I have set a personal goal
The next time I'm in the stands
I'll be cheerin' louder than anyone!
And you'll be holdin my hand!
But I've gotta run now
I heard there's gonna be a game tonight
And I'll be looking for a certain somebody
hopin' you'll be in sight!
