It began as the GODFATHER OF MATH, evolved into the GOODFATHER OF MATH. Now this. Go figure...

They Will Say You're Good ... And Then They Will Say Goodbye

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Play the game
play the ball
till your talent
is ten feet tall

Kick the ball
through the 
goal posts

They will cheer...
they will drink
to you they 
will toast

They will cheer
they will drink
and say 
you are 
the most

...
...

Play the game
play the ball
till your age 
is nothing small

Then they kick you
through the 
old posts

They will cheer
they will drink
someone new
is now the most

They will cheer
they will drink
but to them 
you are now toast

Paul Oliverio
