Football & Divorce

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Too long planning the trip to Crewe
Not enough time in B and Q.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Too busy watching Match of the Day
Instead of saying the things I needed to say

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Sat on trains for too many hours
And didn’t come home with chocolates and flowers

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Too many Saturday night depressions
Not enough houseworking good impressions

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Too hoarse from shouting at the man in black
To tell her I loved her when I got back

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Too skint at Christmas with extra games
To buy her that major present she craves

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Sorrows to drown because we’re bottom
Another anniversary forgotten

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 No sweet nothings this Tuesday night
Freezing my nuts off at the Stadium of Light

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 And when she needed me to just be her man
I was at Gillingham, Cardiff and Fulham
