Some people say that life is a game, well if this is so
I'd like to know the rules on which this game of life is based
I know of no game more fitting than the age old game of cricket
It has honor, it has character and it's British

Now God laid down the rules of life
When He wrote those Ten Commandments
And to cricket those ten same rules shall apply
Show compassion and self-righteousness and be honest above all
And come to God's call with bat and ball

Now the Devil has a player and he's called the Demon Bowler
He's shrewd, he's rude and he's wicked
He is sent by Sinful Satan and he's out to take your wicket
And you know that that's not cricket

He'll baffle you with googlies with leg breaks and off spin
But keep a level head and don't let that demon in
So keep a straight bat at all times, let the Bible be your guide
And you'll get by, yes you'll get by

All through your life he'll try to bowl you out
Beware the Demon Bowler
He's crafty and deceitful and he'll try to L.B.W.
And bowl a maiden over

The Devil takes the weak in spirit and so we must always be courageous
And remember that God is on your side
So keep old Satan in your sights and play the straight and narrow line
And you'll get by, yes you'll get by
