Give us back our football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Bragging in the playground,
bragging in the pub.
Bragging in the workplace
who’s the better club.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Teams with wealthy chairmen
will come out on top.
Little teams are struggling.
Where’s it going to stop?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Terraces need weeding,
turnstiles turn to rust.
Locals cheer United
as their team goes bust.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In the global village,
what will the future hold?
Twenty super-rich teams?
The rest out in the cold?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 They won’t give back our football-
there’s far too much to lose.
Oh, if they could only walk
a mile in our shoes.
