Doing It !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I was doing it when
I was five years old in 1958
We were poor back then as I recall
We used to live on ” the slate”*

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’d do it till it was late at night
I’d do it in the street
I’ve done it in cages, got in rages
Been held to a draw and beat

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I did it by the riverside
I did it in the park
Early in the morning
Rising with the lark

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I did it with priests
I did with nuns
I did it with me dad
I was Bobby Moore, Denis Law
Like Nobby Stiles I got mad

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But there’s nuffink
That beat’s winning it (the match)
This footballl’s a real treat!

Notes
