about

When I moved back home I started coaching volleyball and basketball and it triggered a lot of high school nostalgia.

‘Coach’ - Written/Composed By Alexander Shenton – 2016/03/17

Wish I had sick handles like a major baller
Instead I got bad knees work a blue collar
I enjoy doing what I do to make a dollar
So I don’t mind donating my time to these young scholars

I try to emphasize that they are the architects
Of every single situation that they ever wrecked
Find the lessons don’t trip keep your temper checked
Keep calm, play on, and you won’t get decked

Imagine all the powers you have yet to find
Practice anything that you can think in your mind
Fly a kite, ride a bike, shoot your threes blind
Do what you gotta do, but be kind

So you wanna be a major baller? Got some advice for you son.
Put in work and pay those dues. Spend your nights, make your dreams come true.
So you wanna be an all star player? Gonna hafta put your back into it.
Put in work and pay those dues. Spend your nights make your dreams come true.

Spent so many days bouncin’ balls and chasing dreams
Taking shots from half, imagine how the crowd screams.
Practiced till I puked just to make the fucking team
Not a motion wasted, face it, I’m as magic as I seem.

Theres something special about every single game night
Walk on the court, feels like I’m shining light
Hearts full, chin up, eyes are so bright
Ref’s go whistles blow, we’re about to take flight.

Now and then I wish I could go back in time
Tell my younger self a little reason for my rhyme
But the confidence of youth is so sublime
I’d probably ignore what’s in store and focus on the grind.

So you wanna be a major baller? Got some advice for you son.
Put in work and pay those dues. Spend your nights, make your dreams come true.
So you wanna be an all star player? Gonna hafta put your back into it.
Put in work and pay those dues. Spend your nights make your dreams come true.
So you wanna be a major baller? Got some advice for you son.
Put in work and pay those dues. Spend your nights, make your dreams come true.
So you wanna be an all star player? Gonna hafta put your back into it.
Put in work and pay those dues. Spend your nights make your dreams come true.
