Away Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You meet up early, all the boys are there
the waiting’s over, another season’s here
there’s nothing like it to see them play
week in week out every saturday.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Remember those days and the boys we knew
when going to football was what to do
On the road again, away day
away away away day.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The terrace’s packed the atmosphere’s great
it’s a different world through the turnstile gate
you take up position behind the goal
and lift up your voices with heart and soul.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 After it’s over still one thing to do
Get down the pub and have a few
you all stand together never alone
then it’s back home for a night on the town.


Away Day is a dedication to the weekly pilgrimage made every other week during the football season to a far flung corner of England’s pastures green.
The Terraces may be gone but the memories are everlasting.
Away Day is now a song and can be found on ‘The Wonderful World of Football’ Album by The 253 Boys, available on itunes and most major download sites.
