Lyrics - Every Moment
THAT’S HOW YOU PLAY THE GAMEby Jan Nigro © 1994 Janimation Music BMI
Tommy really has a gift for playing basketball.
Problem is he doesn’t seem to have much fun at all.
He trash talks everyone, complains at every call.
He blames his teammates if they lose,
You wonder why he even plays at all.
Now Andy has a different style when he plays the sport,
Although he isn’t all that great when he’s out on the court.
He always has a good time, yeah, he just loves to play,
And people like him on their team,
They enjoy his easygoing way.
Come to jump, (come to jump),
Come to run, (come to run),
Come to play, (come to play),
And have some fun, (and have some fun).
Lose or win, (lose or win),
Don’t lose your grin, (don’t lose your grin).
Enjoy it just the same.
That’s how you play the game.
That’s how you play the game!
My sister had a baseball coach
who lost his cool a lot.
Although the team was trying hard
his temper got real hot.
He wanted to win so bad whenever
they would play.
He screamed and yelled and put them down,
If only he had looked at it this way.
You don’t have to be good at sports
To be a great human being.
You may have other talents,
and be good at other things.
You may not be the playing sort,
It’s not for everyone.
But if you choose to play a sport, have fun!
There’s football and there’s baseball
And there’s soccer and there’s hoop.
So find a sport that’s good for you
and find a friendly group.
A group that has a good time,
that makes you glad you came.
And let’s not get too serious,
remember after all it’s just a game.
