Boys On A Wall

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Perched on a wall
Seven lads watching the game
Bobble hats and bare knees
In the wind and rain

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Seven little scallies
Doing what lads do
Watching the football
On a Saturday afternoon

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Sat behind the goalie
In the embers of the day
Final non-league fixture
Accrington Stanley is the name

Based on a photograph of seven wee boys on a wall watching Accrington Stanleys final non-league game (against Glossop) in January 1966.
