How can I persuade him?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ll have to tell a big fat lie
And then deny him Sky

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Other teams aren’t there son
Blundell Park’s were you have fun
The others a temporary eleven
Only there for our possible heaven

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Do you think he’ll believe me?
That the only team is Grimsby?
Or will he seek out the likes of Henry?
Is it inevitable eventually?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Probably

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But I’ll show him black and white
And hope it won’t be a fight
To get him there on a Saturday afternoon
And hope it won’t be too soon
When he asks: “What’s an Anfield Dad?”
And I’ll reply: “Just a dream my lad.”

Notes

I’m a Dad for the first time. We’ve named him George.
