Thomas Walsh - Neil Hannon

Sergent Yankee in his baseball cap
Throwing curveballs all over the map
It’s not right

It’s not cricket!
Vlad the Impaler is taking off his shirt
To wrestle with the riot girls down in the dirt
It’s not right

It’s not cricket!

All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel
Like we’re all playing on a level playing field Like we’re all playing on a level playing field
It’s not right Right
Right

Henry Blofeld: It’s just not cricket!

Bend over bank-man and take one for the team
A billion dollar bonus and a handshake from the queen
It’s not right

It’s not cricket!
You’ve got a nerve to dedicate your victory to god
When all you’ve done is medicate your way back to the top
It’s not right

It’s not cricket!

All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel
Like we’re all playing on a level playing field Like we’re all playing on a level playing field
It’s not right Right
Right

Henry Blofeld: Well, one thing it certainly isn’t is cricket. You simply can’t get away with that. It’s just not cricket!

It’s not right!
It’s not cricket!

It’s not right!
It’s not cricket!

All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel
All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel All we’re really saying is it doesn’t really feel
Like we’re all playing on a level playing field Like we’re all playing on a level playing field
Like we’re all playing on a level playing field Like we’re all playing on a level playing field
It’s not right Right

Henry Blofeld: No. No, that, that, that just... It is not cricket.
No, doesn’t work.

It’s not right
It’s not cricket!
It’s not right
It’s not cricket!
It’s not right
Henry Blofeld: You know, my dear old thing, really you must pull yourself together!
It’s not cricket!
It’s not right
Henry Blofeld: Calypso collapso
It’s not cricket!

Henry Blofeld: It’s dreadful…
