Three Puffs on his Pipe (Echo Trophy Final Song 1999)
It's coming home, it's coming home,
It's coming, cricket's coming home,

It's coming home, it's coming home,
It's coming, cricket's coming home,

Everyone seems to know Tap's score - they've seen it all before,
They just know, they're so sure
That Lymo's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away,
But I know they can play
Cos I remember . . .

Three puffs on his pipe,
The Echo Trophy's still gleaming
Thirteen years of hurt
Never stopped Taps dreaming

So many slogs, so many smears,
And all those oh-so-nears wear you down
through the years
But I still see that six at OTs
and that catch at Parley
and that slog at Bashley
(but they're just village!)

Three puffs on his pipe,
The Echo Trophy's still gleaming
Thirteen years of hurt
Never stopped Taps dreaming

I know that was then, but it could be again . . .

It's coming home, it's coming home,
It's coming, cricket's coming home . . .
