Fans, Don’t Yer Just Love Em?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The things they’ve said, stay in yer head
Long after whistle’s gone
They criticize the whole twenty five of them*
No one escapes their puns

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No matter what way the game is played
Or whose wearing treasured shirt
The comments still come flying from them
With humour and its mirth:

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘He’s the quickest bloke I’ve ever seen,
He is, you mark my words’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘Yeah, when he’s running to the betting shop
And chasing after birds’!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 ‘Has yer man been to weight watchers
Did he wait outside and watch’?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 ‘The only double we”ll get this year
Is at darts, that’s double tops’!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 ‘That bloke in the number eight shirt
Is that his IQ or his age’?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 ‘He should get an Oscar for that dive he done
Put him on the stage’!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 ‘That keeper, is he Frankenstein,
Frightened of a cross’?

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 ‘Oi Referee, can’t you see?
That blimmin linesman ten times worse’!

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 The winger who won’t tackle
The forward who can’t score
The centre half who’s like a whining calf
The manager who’s a bore

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 All of them are fair game
For ridicule and fun
As long as there’s no malice intended
Then there’s been no harm done !

Notes

* two teams and the officials at the start of ninety minutes, anything else is more for the fans to ridicule as sustitutions happen!

peace.

kev.
