Death of a Goalkeeper

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A long time ago
I was bit of a goalkeeper, bit of an actor,
Who wrote a bit of poetry

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then direction changed
And I got a new collar
And became a priest

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Looked after my flock
Got the big chair in the end
Hard and lonely job

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Last line of defence
Not unlike a goalkeeper,
Just think about it

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When you have to face
The Devil, who’s a forward
In the Darkness team

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Now it’s time to go
The Big Referee calls time.
The dressing room calls
