A Damp Squib Or What?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ah the red and white flags shine brightly
Up and down the street
As the day draws near when we find out how good we are
With a football at our feet

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And the redtops build our hopes up
In unity for the team
As the nation puts the kettle on
To get up a head of steam

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Ah but one supermarket basket case
Is but a dampened squib
As Tesco forbids the cross of St George on its fleet
Who do they think that they’re trying to kid?

As flags hang out of flats
Whilst all the fans can harbor dreams
That we’ll bring the World Cup back

As they discuss the fifth metatarsal
Whilst the postman’s in a Beckham shirt
Delivering their parcels

Who do they think that they’re trying to kid?

Remind us of who we are
The fans spirit starts to bond as one
Cross the country near and far

Adorned in nations flags
Let all the passers by in the street
Know “We’re right behind the lads”!

And decorate the house
The radio blares out moving World Cup tunes
Religiously on the hour

On who’ll win the cup
With its windows adorned in all nations flags
To help you make your mind up

Is but a dampened squib
As Tesco forbids the cross of St George on its fleet
Who do they think that they’re trying to kid?
