I’ve a confession to make,
I’ve loved you for all this time
from the very first moment
I became aware of you.
I was only a young boy
but age never meant a thing
even when my mother said
nothing good will come of it.
Luckily my Dad was fond of you too
said take no notice of Mum
she’ll come round in the end
but my mind was made up.
Here I am a middle aged man
and still in love with you
yes we’ve had our ups and downs
with lots of tears along the way.
But nothing has come between us
girlfriends have come and gone
but not you as you’re still here
together we have survived it all.
Yes Football you’ve caused me pain
and broken my heart many times
but my love for you remains
and will do so for years to come.
