England In The Pub

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s nearly kick off time
the pub is filling up,
England verses Italy
in the World Cup.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Eleven o’ clock at night
so it’s a little bit late,
some fans are really drunk
and many are in a state.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But the atmosphere is building
as the game gets underway,
me and my son together
to watch the Three Lions play.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Italians score first
but Sturridge bangs one in,
England are playing well
I think we’re going to win.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But our defense looks wobbly
when Italy are on the attack,
and they go 2-1 down when Balotelli
heads in unmarked at the back.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Still England keep on pressing forward
as us fans drink nervously and fret,
but once again Wayne Rooney
just cannot put the ball in the net.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So the Italians held on to their lead
as we stagger off out of the door,
but England tried really hard
and at least deserved the draw.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So up next comes Uruguay
a team we have to beat,
but they have a certain Suarez
who likes to dive and cheat.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 But we have the players to do it
so come on England show some fight,
but watch out for Suarez’s teeth
as you know he likes to gnaw and bite !



The pub was rocking on Saturday night and even though the hype wasn’t as intense as usual the atmosphere was electric come the kick off.
The whole bar was jumping when Sturridge scored but quitened down when Balotelli scored the winner.
So bring on Uruguay on Thursday and another night down the pub !
