Goal Hanging

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When I play football
I tend to goal hang,
Leaning on the wall
With the usual gang.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But if I fail to score
I’m in a real pickle,
It will be war
For the fans that are fickle.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’m playing with the lads
The only girl on their side,
On my shins I wear pads
For the bruises that I hide.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I pretend all is fine
And I’m not pushed to the limit,
The goal in front is mine
Football playing is not a gimmick.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As I hit the back of the net
Hearing the lads cheer,
Forever in my debt
This goal hanging is the gear!



When I was a wee girl I was the only girl on our estate to be interested in football…I had no interest in Barbie dolls I only wanted to play football!!! :o)
