The ping pong song

We finished with a song on the football pitch
Singing all along on the football pitch 
Had a little sing with a sing-song-sing
Had a little fling with a ding-dong-ding
Ran down the wing with a ping-pong-ping
Down the wing with a ping-pong ball.

Down the wing, down the wing
Down the wing, down the wing
Down the wing, with a ping …
Pong ball. And that’s all.

We played a little game with a ping-pong ball
On a football pitch with a ping-pong ball
Ran down the wing with a ping-pong-ping
Down the wing with a ping-pong ball.

We had a little hitch on the football pitch
A free for all with a ping-pong ball
Put ourselves about with a ding-dong-ding
Had a little shout with a ding-dong-ding
Ran down the wing with a ping-pong-ping
Down the wing with a ping-pong ball.

From Everybody was a Baby Once.
