The Comrade Trellis
Ballad of Tennis Friday
An idea was formed,
roughly 10 years ago
You approached some young men and Tennis Friday did grow
You met in a group, on a Tuesday did run
Mike on his phone, yet you paid for this fun!
The boys were excited, Tennis Friday was born
Col brought in a girl...nearly pistols at dawn
Les, Col, Bob, Tone, Derk and Pete
A delicate girl...and a boy with huge feet
So now we discovered we often had seven,
Not enough for the group.... when one left at eleven
Derk suggested we bring in his son
Some voted No! but the Northerner won!
Then came the cabbie, late when called
And his leftie best mate ...by a Tiger was mauled
Big Kev then joined and was never mute
Singing on court, with a girl in his boot
You've given us rules and given us laughs
The emails, your hat and your T-shirt with STAFF
With Queen Sleeps remembered and Ducks best forgotten
Happy Birthday and thanks from the heart of our bottoms!
