IT’S COMING HOME…

After being runners up four times since they last lifted the trophy in 2005, will Somerset emerge victorious from this years T20 Final’s Day at Edgbaston. I do hope so!

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Cricket’s coming home

Everyone seems to know the score
They’ve seen it all before
They just know
They’re so sure
Somerset’s gonna throw it away
Gonna blow it away
But I know they can play
Cos I remember

A [Mythical creature of disputed nomenclature]* on a shirt
Games on YouTube streaming
All those years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming

So many jokes, so many sneers
But all those oh-so-nears
Wear you down
Through the years
But I still see:
Smeed and Banton unleashed
A Rilee Rossouw run feast
VDM on the charge
And Ben Green’s moustache

A [Mythical creature of disputed nomenclature]* on a shirt
Games on YouTube streaming
All those years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming

I know that was then but it could be again

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Cricket’s coming home

Addendum :

With it being forecast to be 27C at Egbaston today, it’s just as well that Stumpy is a real wyvern/dragon and not some poor soul who’s contracted to climb inside a hot costume and then run round an obstacle course. Wishing him all the best In the Mascot race!
