BDog's Babble: The Tennis Rap

BDogContributor IJune 9, 2009

The Tennis Rap

Ace, it’s right on the line

Spin, will make you swing blind

Spike it when the time’s right

Tennis, the game on my mind

 

Hustle, is what the game takes

Precision, can’t deal with mistakes

Power, gives ‘ponents headaches

Superior, like one dem Great Lakes

 

Yeah, they be smacking, attacking

But it takes practice, get crackin’

Doubles you better be backing…

Your lazy teammate for slacking

 

You can’t give up when you’re down

Look up and turn it around

Feel the power, devour

Those skills your body abounds…

 

From your soul and your heart

Always been there from the start

Tennis, a spectacular game

This sport is state of the art


 

Flow, in on the first try

Out, serve gets a retry

Lob, look into the sky

Deuce, tennis version of a tie

 

Desire, play every point to win

Commitment, where do I begin?

Passion, it comes from within

Put your racquet up, or take it on the chin

 

Yeah, they be smacking, attacking

But it takes practice, get crackin’

Doubles you better be backing…

Your lazy teammate for slacking

 

You can’t give up when you’re down

Look up and turn it around

Feel the power, devour

Those skills your body abounds…

 

From your soul and your heart

Always been there from the start

Tennis, a spectacular game

This sport is state of the art

 

There’s no more reasons I need

Any more facts would exceed

Why can’t you just come to see?

Tennis, the best of the breed
