By day, By night

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 By day respectable member,
of the lower sixth form,
taking five AS levels,
ready to conform,
sometimes I even
wear the tie!
An academic mentor to,
lord only knows why!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 By night I roam the field,
under a different guise,
and face the shots for hours,
long after sun’s demise.
By night I am el gata,
am Matt – he is The Wall,
he’s a trainee chef by day,
but not when we play football.
Aidan’s known as Sniper –
when he’s shooting well,
Ben, we call Carnicero
for reasons I won’t tell!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 By day we’re rather normal,
by night we go insane,
and all the hours in between,
we have football on the brain.
