3. Aston Villa home

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Third game in, Aston Villa at home
The boys should be ready, all in the zone
A good win today would cheer up the Kop
And take us within three points of the top

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A promising start has Villa on the rack
Benayoun and Gerrard have them nervous at the back
Chances go begging, it could be a rout
Villa so lucky to keep the reds out

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then on thirty four a bizarre free kick
Would leave our fans all feeling sick
A Young floated ball, time stands still
An own goal by Lucas, to Villa one nil

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Bad refereeing would hurt us once more
On the stroke of halftime when Villa would score
A corner by Shorey, towards the near post
A header by Davies, he creeps in like a ghost

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Second half starts we’re in disarray
Villa will just not allow us to play
At last we get lucky, make it two – one
A volley by Torres, the game is back on

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The fightback is on but not for long
You can sense in the air that something is wrong
A Gerrard foul on Reo-Coker
An Ashley Young pen the final choker

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 One-three at home a terrible score
Rafa scolds the boys, they have to give more
We have to improve at Bolton away
And bring three points home with much better play
