Football v Work

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 3:00 and I’m working hard,
fighting for my a grade,
by 4:00 I’ll be at home,
then I’ll make the trade,
swap school shoes for astros,
and get a quick game before tea,
forget it all coz i’m in goal,
and nothing’s getting past me.
5-a-side on wednesdays,
homework done in reg next day,
it’s not ideal study,
but it’s the only way.
11s training thursday nights,
games played sunday noon,
revision crammed in saturdays,
and I’m back in school too soon.
