Coming Soon…Coming Home?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s the World Cup soon, they say
Tournament countdown, it starts in five days

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Oh yeah, that – I’m not really interested
Watching England, it’s become a bit of a bore –
Then I remember: Hunter, Hurst and Bobby Moore

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 June Twelve 2014

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There’s me, with my World Cup wall chart
My England pen to fill it in, at least to start
England bunting on the walls
On the table, cheese footballs
A white bread sandwich
With a tomato sauce cross
Looks like the flag of St Georges
Well, footballs the boss!

Notes

Following England in the last few years has been a tough ask, but the tournament still excites. The football fans capacity to dream never diminishes, neither does the armchair apathy of watching 3 x 90 minutes a day in the group stages!
