I Am What I Am, Just An Ordinary Fan.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I am not your modern day footballer
who collects his wages in a hay loader …
from the Premier League pay loader;
aided by Sky TV and now BT money bag dream makers;
so happy to pay ‘the fakers and the takers’ on and off the field.
and so happy to take hard earned brass from the working class.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’m just an ordinary fan;
“I am what I am”.
What happened to the working man’s game?
hijacked by those who just seek money and fame,
which just isn’t funny;
to those who follow the game,
it’s a crying shame,
to forget your roots like that!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No I’m no trend setter,
no go getter,
no position seeker,
no power climber.
no football cheater
no racist banter
no foul mouthed ranter
no ‘prima donna’.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’m no crowd pleaser just a word teaser,
no people pleaser, who’s trying to fool ya.
Just a football fan, that’s who I am.
Perhaps a word rhymer,
a letter writer,
a campaign fighter,
maybe a ‘fire starter’,
or a motivator.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The power is in the written word; ( pause)
mightier than all the chairmen of the board.
No streets here paved with football gold;
paid for by the poor fans I’m told.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 No money to line my pockets,
no gimmicks,
no greedy agents
with slimy tricks,
no hangers on,
no football politics;
just an ordinary fan.
So please don’t exploit me!
