6-0

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When you’re plucking crosses out of the air,
when you don’t have to look to see who’s where,
when the corners fly in but you’re already there
when you don’t give the gaffer a single scare

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When your back-four own every loose ball,
and when they switch and pass and call,
when they make you feel about ten foot tall,
when they hardly let balls past at all

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When the midfield is fluid and nifty and quick,
when they scare opposition with every free-kick,
when they’re rounding defenders with a skillful trick
when the passing is tight and the movement is slick

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the forwards have venom and speed and pace,
when they’re beating every player they face,
when they dispossess and vanish without a trace
when they play with power and grace

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 when the entire team plays as one
when we’re scoring goals for fun
when we still don’t concede playing into the sun,
when we know it’s already won

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 that’s when you’re on to a 6-0 win!
