Tennis!

Description
I grew up in Södertälje outside of Stockholm. One day me and a friend where knicking apples. An elderly woman came out and said: "No need to steal young boys, come on in, I give you some ice cream and warm apple sauce to go with it!" I don't recall how it happened that she told us who she was, Bjorn Borgs mom, but we ended up in the living room, where she showed us pictures from his career, which was still in in big bloom. I'd long forgotten about it, but for some reason the memory struck me the other day.

Lyrics
Tennis!

I want to play tennis with you, can I please be Mr. Bjorn Borg
I've earned the title, since born in Sweden, grew up in his cold hometown
You can either be Jimmy, Becker or Cash, as long as I can be Mr. Borg

Serve! And I'll hit you with a backhand!
Serve! And I'll hit you with a forehand!

Australian Open, French Open, US Open and Wimbledon!

I nicked some apples from Bjorns mom, although I did not know it until after I got caught
She was cool, invited me inside, to show me some pictures of her famous son
I think that's why I am more of a Bjorn, and you're more of a Billie Jean King
I am sorry to say it; you're going to lose this match!

Australian Open, French Open, US Open and Wimbledon!

Forth and back, forth and back.

Andre Agassi, John McEnroe, Yannick Noah and Pat Cash
Steffi Graf, Navratilova, Serena and Venus Williams
Love you all, love your green balls, love your rules, would love to par

Serve! And I'll hit you with a backhand!
Serve! And I'll hit you with a forehand!

Australian Open, French Open, US Open and Wimbledon!

Thankx Feter
Men grow up, and move away from Tennis (normally), and adapt to other hobbies like Macjam's, beer and rock "n" roll. But, I did play lots of tennis as a teenager, and yes, I thought too, I was going to become B. Borg one day. Then I met PUNK ROCK. The rest is history.

You had me from the very beginning - great sounds
Excellent song Mikki - totally cool production and great story. There's no one like ou when it comes to expressing yourself by any means necessary. Truly amazing.
When I first came to NYC in 1972 I was riding the subway with my guitar and an older woman struck up a conversation saying her son played guitar too. I asked if he was well known - she said no - but perhaps you know him - he's Dave Van Ronk. I just about fell off the bench. Then I told her how proud she must be of his work and how much I loved it.

Ace!
Very original tune... top notch mix and instrumentation

No Roger Federer? No Rafa Nadal?.... lol

Actually, I'm tuned into your classic tennis era as well. Bjorn retired at 24. I missed watching him play.

Brilliant.
Wonderful back story. Love the way this song creeps up on you until you are completely immersed in it.
Thanks for another great download.
Cheers

that's a terrific story, for whatever reason bjorn bjorg has his own place in my subconscious. anyway great tune, your a damn genius, that's what i think, you compose quirky, top notch pop tunes like nobody else out here.
