80’s Revisited.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 All the time you lied
Whilst chasing our poor backsides
Down motorways and through stations
In the name of civilization.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Chelsea suits fought solicitor gangs
But at Saltergate we were the harangued
The ordinary bemused factory slates
Clubbed, for singing with our mates.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Next week we shut up and went to Crewe
What else were we supposed to do?
There was no Xfactor or Xboxstations
No questions, options or ticket arrangements.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But now I’ve learnt to read
I understand your avarice, your greed
The establishment didn’t really hate Walsall
They just wanted to take over football.
