I Could Have Been….

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I could have been a keeper
protecting all I own
in every team I’ve always been
the one who stood alone
the needle in a haystack
with trusty hand and fist
i moved the goalposts to become
an acupuncturist

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I could have been the linchpin
the prince of common sense
as steadfast as a rock in storms
for any world defence
but now I tend to flowerbeds
and fight off each attack
of slugs and snails a gardener now
I’m never going back

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I could have been a winger
creating goals with style
I’d leave defenders stranded
and make supporters smile
from decorating games with flair
I roller as I roam
and now I rush with paint and brush
around your room and home

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I could have been a striker
the predatory one
deliv’ring goals as if on cue
until each game was won
I’m still ahead of all the rest
I’m up from break of day
I’m still the cream of any team
a milkman I will stay

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I could have been a manager
the one to rule and reign
a lion-taming mountaineer
but maybe then again
I’d rather be a humble fan
who follows through and through
for bosses come and strikers go
but fans stay ever true
