FAIR GAME

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The England girls they did their best
And made themselves a name
They gave their all and made us proud
For the Women’s game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No sex no drugs just rock and roll
No kiss and tell red tops
Just goals sublime and tricky moves
And a blistering Aluko

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Carney’s goals against the Finns
Set pulses all on fire
The fans were buzzin’ cheering on
England’s mighty lions

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 This is what the game’s about
They graced the football pitch
Passion flair a silky touch
Of these 3 take your pick

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Shankly Busby Paisley Stein
Football Icons all
Looked down from Heaven’s Terrace
Impressed by what they saw

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Players playing for the game
Proud to wear the shirt
Not lure of money greed or fame
But Football, Football Fair.
