Now gather 'round for a tale that's tall
But true as it can be
'Bout the day the Rangers of Risembool
Met the Skirts in middle Tennessee

The leader of the msa
A giant of a fella
Set out to show that his miniskirts
Were anything but yella
(Ooo ooo ooo)

Across the line a shorter man
But with fire in his eyes
Would lead the Rangers in their quest
To squash the skirt-clad guys

The vicious match was set to start
Of the world's most dangerous game
That tests the metal of each man
And dodgeball is it's name

[Chorus:]
And they dipped and they ducked and they dodged that day
But they could not dodge them all
And Travis fell and the skirts went down
When the Rangers rule that old dodgeball

(Ah-ooo...)
Old Vic dove flat up on the ground
The dodge heard 'round the world
(Both sides) Both sides are jumping back and forth
As the rubber balls were hurled (echo: rubber balls were hurled)

Then someone shouted "Sudden death"
And the leaders took the field (they took it, ooo...)
But when the showdown ended
It was Travis who would yield (echo: would yield)

[Chorus:]
And they dipped and they ducked and they dodged that day
But they could not dodge them all
And Travis fell and the skirts went down
When the Rangers rule that old dodgeball

When the smoke had cleared, the Rangers stood
The Skirts went down in flames
The team led by a pipsqueak
Had won the dodgeball game (Oh oooh oooooh...)

So if you're ever passin' by (ooh oooh)
And Tennessee's the spot (ooh oooh)
You can see where Rangers bested Skirts
In a hotel parking lot (ah ah ah ah aaaah)

And that game of such great danger (great danger)
To Ranger great and small (great and small)
From henceforth and forever (and forever)
Will be known as "Risemball"

[Chorus:]
And they dipped and they ducked and they dodged that day
But they could not dodge them all
And Travis fell and the skirts went down (went down, went down)
From henceforth and forever
Will be known as "Risemball"
