Going for promotion is exciting
Trying to nick a play off place
Even fighting a relegation battle
Is better than nowt to play for.
My team has got the points in the bag
Safe near the middle of the table
But it’s more interesting and lively
When every game is a six pointer.
You’re listening out for other games
Sporadic cheers breaking out
Nerves are stretched and taut
Fingernails chewed to the quick.
You remember what it feels like
To escape relegation by one point
Memories of a final day great escape
Or you got promotion with a goalless draw.
So enjoy those final day occasions
Embrace all those ups and downs
Because it’s a lot more exciting
Than a team going through the motions.
