New Modern British Musical (2015)
Bend It Like Beckham the Musical - Just A Game / Fly Lyrics

(Foreign language)

Papaji, Papaji, are you there
Hear your child, hear her prayer
Papaji, Papaji, if you see
Turn your gaze on me

Papaji, Papaji, help me choose
Put yourself in my shoes
Papaji, hear me
Papaji, help me
Perfect in wisdom
Sitting in glory
Papaji, tell me, what is my story

(Foreign language)

It’s a game, I know it’s just a game
A game of elegance and skill
But tears or triumph
Life will still go on the same

And though of course I’d be the first to say
That it can rob you of your breath
It’s not a case of life or death
It’s still a game
But if I took the other road
Would I regret the final score
Would I look back in years to come
Will it be clear what it’s been for
Can I be sure, so sure
It’s really more than just a game

(Just a game)
Just a game
(Just a game)
Just a game
(Just a game)
It’s this Beckham
Blikey Beckham that I play
(That I play)
More girls in your position
More than ever, ever, ever
It’s like [?]
(It’s like [?])
It’s like [?]
(It’s like [?])
It’s like shame
(It’s like shame)
It’s like shame
(It’s like shame)
It’s like shame

Stop right there
Whose life exactly are you living, Jess
We’ve a chance to play in Germany
This ain’t Luton Town, Jess
This is England versus Germany

Fly, fly, fly
Come with us and fly, fly, fly
We’re chasing the sun
Become of the fun
Be willing to try
Now, right now
Could be our big chance
Why bow to defeat
Why sound the retreat
When you could advance
So play with us
(Play with us)
Try with us
(Try with us)
Grow with us
(Grow with us)
Fly with us
(Fly with us)
Grow with us
(Grow, grow with us)
Grow with us
We’ll catch you if you fall
We’ll catch you if you fall

What use is winning shiny trophies
When you don’t know how to cook
[?] finding you a husband
When you look the way you look
We’re sick and tired of your [?]
And we’re bringing you to book
A girl who kicks, no man will kiss
You live and die, just [?], miss
What use is this

What’s wrong with longing
For a semi
In a leafy South [?] street
Why can’t you want what’s only normal
Like a plastic creepy suite
What good is running like a Kenyan
If it means you cannot eat
A wife is not an acrobat
A wife should have a little fat
What’s wrong with that

Wannabe someone
(Wannabe someone)
Wanna be free
(Wanna be free)
Gonna get angry
(Oh, Miss Angra’s game is spoiling)
And if there’s spoiling for a wrangle
Let come and tangle with me
Then they’ll see
‘Cause a dream
('Cause a dream)
Is just a dream
(All of our dreams)

(Foreign language)

It’s a game
Just look, it’s all a game
(We’re all they have)
So trust your heart and just decide
How much you show
How much you hide
And play the game
Destroy their dreams
Don’t be a fool
Don’t be a fool
Don’t throw your hopes away
Am I fool to throw my hopes away
(Throwing their hopes away)
And give and take
And not just give
My life is mine not theirs to live
You only get one life to live
And surely something has to give
So play the game
In any game
(It’s not just a game)
Just a game
Just a game

Play the game
No, just play the game
Don’t let those dreams get left for dead
Don’t let those voices in your head
Affect your aim

It’s a game
I know it’s just a game
But game or not, you need to know
If you’ve got what it takes to go
And stake your claim
Just play the game
Just go and play the game
It’s not as if you’ve never lied
Just suit their needs, or being a side
So play the game
([?] only one game)
If not, you’ll be the only one to blame
(If everyone [?])
There isn’t any reason why
You heart has passed you by
So play the game
So play the game
(so fly, fly, fly)
So play the game
(Fly, fly, fly)
Come with us and fly, fly, fly
Stop giving yourself to mission control
Stop living a lie
(Lie)
Fly

One final task, and then we ask
For nothing more
You are what our saving, our scrimping and saving
Yes, you are what our dreaming was for

Give up this game
(Give up this game)
Lose control
(It’s just a game)
You’re so much more
(It’s just a game)
This is your destiny
Someone like you
[?]
Can’t you give it
Can’t you give it
Can’t you give it
Can’t you give it
