    'Love the way you bat' (lets make a song!)

    Hey guys,

    This is just an idea I had. I can see either everybody getting behind it and it being awesome, or everybody thinking it is a terrible idea and it falls flat.

    Lets take a song and change the words to make in entirely about cricket. I'm thinking Eminem's new song 'Love the way you lie'. For those unfamiliar with this song, you can listen to it here;

    YouTube - Eminem - Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

    I am not yet creative enough to change the entire song lyrics, but I would be interested to see what my fellow CW'ers can come up with. I'm thinking references of ball-biting, chucking, Ponting/Tendulkar debates etc. Here is a section I have done;

    "You push pull each other's hair, scratch claw hit 'em
    Throw 'em down pin 'em
    So lost in the moments when you're in them"


    becomes

    "You hook, pull the slower balls, slog switch hit 'em,
    Then attack the spin,
    Playing all your shots while you're in"

    Yeah it's only a few lines. But it's a start.

    The full lyrics are here: EMINEM LYRICS - Love The Way You Lie


    Lets see what you've got!

    I'd say Eminem's rhymes would be too difficult to start off with

    'hook, pull the short balls' seems slightly more logical...
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    "Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
    But that's alright because I like the way it hurts
    Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
    But that's alright because I love the way you lie
    I love the way you lie"

    Becomes...

    Just gonna stand there and watch the ball
    But that's alright because I like the way it hurts
    Just gonna stand there and hear you sledge
    But that's alright because I love the way you cuss
    I love the way you cuss.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Ah yes, thanks. I originally had 'slower balls' but got confused while writing it.

    "I can't tell you what it really is
    I can only tell you what it feels like
    And right now it's a steel knife in my windpipe
    I can't breathe but I still fight while I can fight
    As long as the wrong feels right it's like I'm in flight"

    Becomes

    I can't tell you if its out or not out
    I can only tell you what it feels like
    And right now thats a doosra in my windpipe
    I can't bowl leg breaks but I still give it flight while I can flight it
    As long as the wrong-un feels right I like my flight

    Good way to pass the time during a slow partnership in the Pak england game.
