Forever In Blue Jeans (Followin’ The Storks)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 1 Pride of Padiham in the groove
A poem pie and pint
Aye goals sublime and tricky moves
And Daz O on the mic!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The boys in blue they do their best
To make themselves a name
They give their all and make us proud
For the grassroots game

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 DC’s goals a sight to see
As deadly as a ghost
The fans were buzzin’ cheering on
High flyin’ Harvey Close

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 This is what the game’s about
No PPV or VAR
A standing terrace, banter, laughs
Missed shots that smash the bar

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Shankly Busby Paisley Stein
Football Icons all
Look on down from Heaven’s perch
Impressed by what they saw

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Players playing for the game
Proud to wear the shirt
Not lure of money greed or fame
But Football, Football Fair.
