Crack a brew and watch the game
Watch the game and scream and yell
Scream and yell and clap like hell
Crack a brew.
Grab the phone and tweet a verse
Tweet a verse reveal your life
Reveal your life too much strife
Grab the phone.
Think a thought and read a book
Read a book and write some too
Write some too because it’s true
Think a thought.
“Throw a flag,” you yell so loud
Yell so loud you wake the tot
Wake the tot your day is shot
Throw a flag.
The game is through your team lost
Your team lost the tot is grown
Tot is grown and on her own
Game is through.
