Ode to Peter Siddle

Bijed

International Debutant
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
