Everything a Girl needs to Know about Football…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A team made of heroes and villains by large
A visionary striker a midfield like ours
A goalie with hands that pull down the clouds
A back four like rocks who tackle not foul

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Boots packed with passion and built for the fight
A watch like arl Fergie a ref on your side
Total possession a kiss for the badge
Nicknames and jokers one of the lads

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Offside forget it most forwards do
Don’t listen to those who say different to you
They make it seem complex to put off the scent
And keep the game sacred unto themselves

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Or visit the pub and scream at the screen
Hug loads of strangers when its your winning team
Talk up you knowledge and “yes I was there”
Keep up to date with Beckham’s new hair

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Don’t worry if the shirt makes you look fat
There’s a Q for the drinks, “real fans” do that
The toilets a mess but just hold your nose
The scarves are quite trendy the shops never closed

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Christmas Trees Diamonds tactics bewitch
And all of them work ’til they’re used on the pitch
Shinpads and puma jumpers for posts
But is Jimmy Choo boots for the girl with the most

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We’ve thrown off the “other” and set ourselves free
With the flair of a goal from Thierry Henry
We know all the songs and we’ve learned them by heart
But still our stilletto’s get caught in the park
