In Good Time

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 this is for those who travel
this is for those who care
this is for those who give up their time
to follow their team ev’rywhere

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 this is for seeing new places
by car or by coach or by train
this is for being outnumbered
and standing outside in the rain

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 there where the adverts are local
on old fashioned big wooden signs
where terraces still rise in concrete
with raffles read out at half time

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 this is for those who are loyal
the faces you spot on the day
and this is for those who are faithful
who turn up at home come what may

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and this is for keeping it going
whether in village or town
where new boys and giants who’ve dropped from the league
compete in their half empty grounds

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 and this is for those who no longer
are drawn by the Premier’s sway
where stadiums rise up like space ships
and TV dictates when they play

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 and this is for always believing
success is a very fine line
and should it be ours in this season or next
it will happen for sure in good time
