If he said it is me or football who would you choose?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Him: ‘What is all the fuss about?
It’s only a football game,
Anyone would think it is vitally important
I’ll pass, thanks all the same.’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Her: ‘Oh don’t be daft, it’s fun you’ll see
You’ll enjoy it once you’re there,
The tickets are bought now anyway
Come see our players with flair.’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So off we travelled to our Anfield home
My whining Cockney boyfriend and I,
We took our places in the Centenary stand
With the pigeons up so high.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Excitement building I couldn’t wait
To see our lads perform well,
But hopes were dashed when Spurs attacked
And scored to give us hell!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now right behind me and the whining one
Was an abusive man,
He ranted and raved swore abusive names
And he called himself a Liverpool fan!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Things they did go from bad to worse
As Spurs scored another goal,
The whining one he laughed it up
Spurs were on a roll!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The second half kicked off
And we sung at the top of our voices,
The whining one he fell asleep
He had certainly made his choices.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 But woken quickly he suddenly was
As Liverpool scored a goal,
Five minutes later we scored again
Now Liverpool were on a roll!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 We scored one more
To defeat Spurs 3 goals to 2,
My voice was horse from shouting so much
The whining one he hardly said boo!

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 That was it I’d had enough
I needed a footballing man,
But now I’m with a Norwich fan
Where tractors rule the lands!
