    All the experts
    The writers, sportscasters
    Most of whom have played nothing
    Judging you
    You who have accomplished
    Kicked ***
    Setting and breaking records
    They would prefer you to be humble
    Smiling negroes
    So happy to be part of the great American game
    Fortunate to entertain the suntanned faces in the crowd
    Eager to give of your precious time

    You say no
    I say "Right On"
    You play for yourselves
    You play for your team-mates
    Individual skill and accomplishment
    Necessary in the team sport you play
    Go hed on
    Be flamboyant
    Be cocky
    That is the result of the hard work
    The years of excellence
    Your style
    They don't have to like it
    So glad you've told them so
    You are not impressed with their half-assed prop
    So reluctant are they to give it up
    But you don't care
    "Right On" one mo-gen
    You are ball players
    That is what you do
    No one is paying you to be nice and friendly
    So if you don't feel like it
    "Right On"
    Just keep doing your thing
