Life is lazy life is sweet
when January comes
as long as one team’s bowling
and the other’s making runs

I know as soon as I wake up
if it’s my lucky day
if the cricket’s on the ABC
then everything’s okay

And the Cricket’s On The Radio
and everybody’s laying low
as long as there’s a game somewhere
that’s all I need to know
and the Cricket’s On The Radio

Draw the curtains pull the blinds
it’s beating down out there
pop the feet up daddy,
there is cricket on the air

I love the sleepy rhythm of
the commentators’ call
just the ABC and me
and I’ll hang on every ball

And there’s nothing that I have to do
nowhere I have to go
so roll that wicket, I’ve got cricket
on my radio
