Rockin' Rich Lynch: SONG - Pickleball at the Mall

Nashville's Rockin' Rich Lynch found himself walking around The Mall at Green Hills early in 2023 when he stumbled across a pickleball court laid out in the main concourse of the shopping plaza. He initially thought the idea was ridiculous. But then the songwriter and storyteller in him took over. Seeing that the court was only an errant shot away from the Crate & Barrel and The Gap - it's easy to see how both of these stores soon found their way into the first verse of Lynch's timely and observant song. Please BUY THE TRACK through the following links as that will help us record many more songs in the future - thanks!


LYRICS (Words and Music by Rich Lynch)

Verse:
Well they say it's the last
of a dying breed
A once glorious shrine
to runaway greed
Now the powers that be
think they've found what they've need
In the form of a popular game
of both skill and great speed
(They're playing)

Chorus:
Pickleball at the mall
Pickleball at the mall
Come one and come all
(and play)
Pickleball at the mall

Verse:
Now you're in a real Death Match
with your mates Nate and Carol
But you've gone and hit it wide
into the Crate and Barrel
Now you've got it back in hand
so you give it one more violent slap
But you've gone and lost it again
sent it flying into the Gap
(it's just)

Chorus:
Pickleball at the mall
Pickleball at the mall
All you need is a little guts
and a lot of gall (to play)
Pickleball at the mall

Verse:
Got hungry, went looking for food
But found the pickleball court instead
Some shoppers thought the players were rude
And the noise just went to their head
Store owners hoped it would cease
This sound from the pit of hell
If only they had read their lease
And looked after their clientele
(who weren't playing)

Chorus:
Pickleball at the mall
Pickleball at the mall
It can enrage or enthrall
Pickleball at the mall

Verse:
This craze has got its crazies
That's for sure
And they're seeking new recruits at Macy's
and inside the Container Store
So just grab you gear
And make sure to bring a friend
Remember why you're here
There's money left to spend
(after playing)

Chorus:
Pickleball at the mall
Pickleball at the mall
We're talking Green Hills, Y'all
(and)
Pickleball at the mall

Outro:
Pickleball at the mall
Pickleball at the mall
It's just another sign
of our impending fall
Pickleball at the mall

Pickleball at the mall
Pickleball at the mall
Whoever thought this up
get em up against the wall
Pickleball at the mall
