football is

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 football down the alley way football in the street
football for the whole wide world not just the elite
football under lamp-light football on the beach
football with a rolled up sock football with a peach
football in the job centre football in the gutter
football in the superstore with organic butter
football belly dancing football shiatsu
football when you’re half asleep football on the loo

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 football with your budgie when the goals are small
footbal with a walnut or up against the wall
football in the school-yard shorts ripped and grubby
football when the goalies had sweaters and were tubby
football when you’re little football when you’re big
football down at B & Q football at a gig
football in the rain and snow football in the shower
football with oranges or even elderflower

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 football for the very young football for the old
football in a wheelchair football up a pole
football with traffic wardens football with police
football in the Shetlands and the Middle East
football out in Africa football down in China
football off the M15 and down in Carolina
football in some dingey pub football in Tibet
football on the tele football on the net
football on the radio football on the dole
football with a satchel and jacket for a goal
football on your duvet football under cover
football with a veggie burger football with your brother

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 football up the mountainside football on a log
football played with boys and boys football with your dog
football with a siamese cat – lovely silky moves
football with a dj with all those techno grooves
football with a poet i hate it when they rhyme
but football for the people every single time
