3 SONGS FOR ENGLAND

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 SONG FOR ENGLAND

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I swore I wouldn’t buy the shirt
Fly the flag or don the scarf
I swore I wouldn’t watch through fingers
I’ll keep my poor heart off the park

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I will not buy those glossy mags
Those bracelets face paints alice bands
I will not sing those dodgy anthems
Whose tunes and words none understand

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I said I dont care if we win
Or lose or draw I just dont care
My pulse won’t quicken with free quicks
If Beckham cuts or grows his hair

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I wont ink up my skin with tats
Display with pride the lions 3
And yet come Sunday England expects
Who’ll be cheering? yes it’s me!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 SONG FOR ENGLAND TOO

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Raced his heart out for the Reds
A Scouser born a Scouser bred
He talks the game we love to hear
For Stevie G we’ll shout and cheer

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Michael Owen lightning speed
God grant him strength in each hamstring
A useful cross from Beckham’s feet
A goal from Mikey oh so sweet

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Sol Campbell like a rock and sure
England’s hero shuts the door
On those who take a chance on James
Whose hairstyles grow sublimely strange

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The Ginger Wizard needs a goal
To ease his heart and smooth his soul
Whilst Rooney preens the Nevilles sow
And bless his boots there’s Ashley Cole

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Ledley King or Jamie C
We’ll just have to wait and see
Just like ZiZou and Thierry Henry
Has Sven one more ace up his sleeve?

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 SONG FOR ENGLAND 3

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 I’ve bit me nails
Down to the bone
I’ve lost me hair
And chewed the combs

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 A million tears I’ve wept
And more
As life hung on
That final score

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Penno shoot outs
Did for me
T’il Liver Lads
Did Germany

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Banks of England
Save once more
Are you watching
Bobby Moore

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 Oh England calls
The pulse to fire
Bring us our Beckham
Of desire

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 A word in God’s ear
If you please
Henry’s Nan’s English
(Isn’t she?)
