Football Fans

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Some remain calm
others scream and shout
some want to fight
and get thrown out.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Some I’m afraid are racist
a sad reflection of society
others sing obscene songs
and taunt the enemy.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Some live and breath Football
their team is their life
the club is above all
just ask their long suffering wife.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Some go for the friendship
they belong to a football family
the camaraderie is everything
nowhere else do they want to be.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Some fans can be nasty
but most are a decent sort
they are bright and smart
clever of mind and thought.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So leave the true fans alone
without them where would we be ?
a real fan isn’t a hooligan
they are just in the minority.

Once again Football is in the news but for all the wrong reasons.
Racist chants,violence,and fans giving their new manager a hard time.
But I still reckon the majority of fans are decent.and we’ve all been guilty of dodgy behaviour at games,I know I have.
i’ve seen Rugger and Ice Hockey matches that were more like Boxing bouts,but you never hear much about them do you ?
But as the national sport we’re an easy target I feel.
I’m not condoning bad behaviour far from it,but I know it’s not as wide scale as the papers make it out.
