Getting Set For The Match.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Right. Kettle (sic) chips are by me side
Zapper’s there as well
Kettle’s full so come half-time
I’ve a chance for me thirst to quell.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Standards in the other room
Better go and bring that in?
So I know partaking twenty two
By name when the game begins.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s quarter to five so not long now
Till Adrian’ smiling face
Fills our room with his gloomy dour
Slant on the action taking place.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Having said that mind
It could be worse were England’s team still here
Then that other joke, with a real bad line
In getting behind the team, would have us all in tears.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Waiting on Bra-zil, sung twice
I’m quite surprised there’s no picture on the screen
Though it’s Friday night, and much to my surprise
My son comes in, and with a smile tells me:
“There’s no bleedin World Cup games this evening!”



Ah well, never mind.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.
