Grow up Hardy! It ain't time for me to grow up, Mr. Junuh....
Grow up Hardy!
It ain't time for me to grow up, Mr. Junuh.
You're daddy is out sweeping streets because he took every last dime he had, and used it to pay up every man and woman he owed and every business who worked for him, instead of declaring bankruptcy like everyone else in town, including your best friend Wilbur Charles' dad, Raymond, which is why he's able to sit around all day long on his dignity! You're daddy stared adversity in the eye, Hardy. And he beat it back with a broom.
Grow up, Hardy.
It ain't time for me to grow up.
Your dad's sweeping because
he took every dime he had...
...and used it to pay
every man and woman he owed...
...instead of declaring bankruptcy
like everyone, including Wilbur's dad.
Which is why he's able to sit
all day on his "dignity."
Your daddy stared adversity in the eye
and he beat it back with a broom.
You really love this game, don't you?
The greatest game there is.
You really think so?
Ask anybody. It's fun, it's hard...
...and you stand on the green grass,
and it's just you and the ball.
There ain't nobody
to beat up on but yourself.
Just like Mr. Nunan keeps hitting
himself with the club when he's angry.
He's broken his toe three times
on account of it.
It's the only game you can
call penalty on yourself.
If you're honest,
which most people are.
There just ain't
no other game like it.
You better get going.
