You got your net turned round, dunking upside down.

Through the crushing court.

Through the sunken crowd.

You don't know what it means, 'cos you're an airless ball

You can't shoot at all.

You're dressing up your coach

It's all second hand

It's all pre game

You don't understand.

Just a broken court

Still an empty sort

You wanna block the shot

And you know what they're gonna do with that B-Ball

They're gonna slam it in the net.

When you go walking out on the hard ball court

Without a Ball to slam

Without a game plan

Knowing what you need, what you cannot do.

The power forward is you.

They box on yourself 'cos there ain't no one else

Who feels quite as good for man-to-man defense.

You know this game well.

Know what it's not.

Just wanna block the shot.

And you know what they're gonna do, with that B-Ball

They're gonna slam it in the net.
