about

“Call George Hendry the comeback kid. He won the first national junior table tennis championships in 1935, at age 14…and was chosen to appear on the Wheaties box. Then, in 1952, Hendry quit table tennis…After shaking off the rust…he started playing in the senior circuit…”

lyrics

The Tennis Table (George Hendry, 1920-2011)

Wartime champion with the features of a teenage retard, wanting nothing more than tennis tables to whack down on in 1940. Monthly cash out with an avalanche of girls and trophies you could almost see the sweat drip down on all the steaming green tennis tables. Causes, causes: there was always something eating slowly through my mind and through my ping-pong paddle when the Austrian took my title… Long time old man, let’s unfold the table. Slice those chop shots with a paddle in your wrinkled fingers, taking charge of the senior circuit. You can call me the comeback kid, the king of the senior league… Come back come back, I’m the one you want to…
