Football to me

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Watching your team lose in the pouring rain,
An offside decision you just can’t explain.
Walking home, upset, from White Hart Lane.
This is Football to me.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Dodgy food that is served at half-time.
Creating a mountain, that you just can’t climb.
Players getting injured when they’re in their prime
This is Football to me.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Players on the front page, when they should be on the back.
Managers not given a chance before they get the sack.
Its all about the wags, who are shopping in a pack
This is Football to me

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 After losing, deciding who is to blame.
After a managers sacked who is next in the frame.
Reading this I’m not so sure why I love this game.
This can’t be football to me.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’m not serious, this is just a small section
Of the game I love and have lots of affection.
The joy, tears and skill and the fans connection.
This is really football to me.
