Aaron’s First Match

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Unzipped his coat, puffed out his chest,
to show his shirt just like the rest.
He’ll get the bug, suppose I’ll buy him a scarf
relatively early he’s only three and a half.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Aaron’s first game he’s at his first match,
it’s highly infectious and football fever he’ll catch.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Football fever is in his genes
granddad’s, uncles the lot,
football fever he’ll get and football fever he’s got.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In his chest when he loosened his coat
and in his voice when he cleared his throat,
he made a noise that all supporters make
football fever was caught and there’s no medicine he can take.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Aaron’s first game he’s at his first match,
it’s highly infectious and football fever he’ll catch.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 May as well let it out
like his dad at a penalty shout,
football fever is old and isn’t brand new
and you’ve probably got it too.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Three toilet visits a bottle of pop
he ain’t yet heard of the Spion Kop,
zipped up his coat and went, this tenner was well spent.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Aaron’s first game he’s at his first match,
it’s highly infectious and football fever he’ll catch.
He caught it in the queue, the queue at the Molineux.

Notes

Three generations of a family at a football match, the elder can tell of the club’s past, the middle can tell of the present and one day the youngest will tell of the future.

Here’s to all young fans of any football club whoever they support. It’s good to see them watching live football.
