Now gather 'round for a tale that's tall
But true as it can be
About 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

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 its 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

Old Vic dove flat up on the ground
The dodge heard 'round the world
Both sides are jumping back and forth
As the rubber balls were hurled

Then someone shouted "Sudden death!"
And the leaders took the field
But when the showdown ended
It was Travis who 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

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

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