Rikers Song: An Ode to Child-like Faith

(First Game)
Daddy…  what’s going on?
Daddy who are all the faces?
I’m not so sure about this Daddy but I’m sure about you.

So many children, Daddy.
I’ve never played soccer, Daddy.
I’m not sure about this Daddy but I am sure about you.

So I will stay with you, just for a while.
Holding tightly to your leg.
The world can be scary Daddy, it can be so fast, Daddy.
But I know I am safe with you.

Look there’s a ball Daddy and it coming to me.
I can kick it Daddy, Just watch and see!
Ok not this time Daddy but next time they kick it to me.
I’m not sure about this Daddy but I am sure about you.

Daddy are they watching me?  Daddy are the laughing at me?  Daddy will they hurt me?

I will stay with you.  Just for a while
Holding tightly to your leg.
The world can be scary, Daddy, it can be crazy, Daddy.
But I know I am safe with you.

I can kick it, Daddy.  This time for sure!
Did you see me Daddy?  Did you see it go far?
I’m still not sure about this Daddy but I am sure about you.
