Prefab Sprout - I Never Play Basketball Now Lyrics



I'm not looking to disturb you, just a little to unnerve you
I have nothing about games and always looking back
After the last unholy row - I never, ever play basketball now
It joins a list of things I'll miss like fencing foils and lovely girls I'll never kiss
Leave it behind on an overcrowded desk where the "IN"-tray is higher than the "OUT" ever will be
Before the tea rooms fill with flirting couples call. Remember to call
And "FLOW", it skips like a river and it rolls "FLOW", you'll swear it's a chapel - isn't that so?

Think of all the things that grew here, long before we moved here; all of it good and strong, and all of it gone
After that last unholy row - I never, ever play, basketball now
It joins the list of things I'll miss like fencing foils, and lovely girls I'll never kiss
You may say I've got plenty, but no one knows how long things stay big Roger D
