Grassroots Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’re easily pleased us football fans
We don’t dote on silver and gold
Just a player who puts in a decent shift
And every now and then a half decent goal

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We love the blokes who huff and puff around the pitch
And give it everything they’ve got
No champions league prancing princes
On half a million for every misplaced wayward shot

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Oh, give us this day our standing terrace back
And leave the moaners in the pubs
To stand and shout at the google box
In their fake lacoste trackies and adidas trabs

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Let me que two hours to buy my tickets
I don’t mind the biting rain
Banter laughs and who cares the crowd is one man and his dog
It’s boss to be a match-day standing terrace fan again

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 2 Yea, let me forget the cold that bites my ageing toes
Ignore the joyless creaks in my protesting bones
Sound forth the childhood voice not mobile phones
“It’s boss to be a match-day standing terrace fan again!”
