    Ode to Peter Siddle

    With talk of Peter Siddle returning to the international scene, I've decided to post this song I (partially) wrote about him a little while ago when I was inspired by wellAlbidarned's Ode to Neil Wagner:

    A Big Heart - to the tune of Feargal Sharkey's 'A Good Heart'

    I hear a lot of stories, I suppose they could be true
    About giving up meat, and what it can do to you
    High is the risk of losing pace, the risk of getting hurt
    And yet too see you bowl again I yearn

    Well I know, 'cause I think about you all the time
    I know that a quick like you is quite a find

    A big heart these days is hard to find
    You run in all day, time after time
    A big heart these days is hard to find
    And that's why you're always on my mind

    My expectations may be high, I blame it on your youth
    When there wasn't a team that you could not run through
    You've always been a fighter, your wicket tally's grown
    So many are the times you've taken Straya home

    Well I know, 'cause I learn a little every day
    I know, cause I listen when the pundits say

    A big heart these days is hard to find
    You run in all day, time after time
    A big heart these days is hard to find
    And that's why you're always on my mind

    Now I reflect on all my childhood dreams
    When you'd walk in to any World XI team
    And as for taking wickets, you left all the rest behind
    A big heart these days, it's hard to find

    I know, you can be so tricky to defend
    I know that you'll get the batsman in the end

    A big heart these days is hard to find
    You run in all day, time after time
    A big heart these days is hard to find
    And that's why you're always on my mind

    A big heart these days is hard to find
    You run in all day, time after time
    A big heart these days is hard to find
    And that's why you're always
    Always on my mind

    A big heart
    (baby, baby)
    A big heart
    A big heart
    A big heart
    A big heart
    (baby, baby)
    A big heart
    A big heart
