In the pub watching the game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The pub is starting to get busy
the City are live on the T.V.
makes a change from the Premier
as it’s Ipswich versus Coventry.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Got a seat by the screen
should get a decent view
but some people are in the way
and at the bar there’s a big queue.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The pub is now really full
it’s noisy like you’re in the ground
then just as it’s about to start
my mate says it’s my round.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So I rush to get the beer in
but the service is very slow
then I get a call on my mobile
and someone stands on my toe.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When I hobble back to my seat
I find that we are now one down
so we all start singing some songs
hoping they can hear us at Ipswich Town.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Then the Tractor Boys get another goal
as usual we are playing really poor
and when they make it three nil
half of the drinkers are out the door.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 My mates are now playing Pool
and the Jukebox has been put back on
by the time the match is over
almost everyone in the pub has gone.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So in future I’m staying at home
as it’s cheaper tuning into the radio
all I got was a bit of a hangover
and a badly swollen big toe !

Notes

Went to watch Mondays game that was on SKY down the pub, the atmosphere was good at the start but the team quickly put an end to that with a very poor performance.

I don’t think I’ve ever really watched a match in a boozer and really enjoyed a game, too much seems to be going on most of the time,
in fact it really is a case of only being there for the beer !
