I’ve Never Been Good At Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lunchtimes in the school playground
Getting caught up in the melee
I’ve never been good at football
But in my head, I’m bleedin’ Pele

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then later on we’d play a second leg
In the nearest open park
We’d thrash out our aggregate score
‘Till it was way past dark

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The agony of a goal going in
And friends blame being placed on ya
I’ve never been good at football
But in my head, I’m Maradona

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In sixth-form, a kickabout was a rare treat
As we were always laden with work
But when we got an opportunity
We all went bezerk

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Even then, in terms of skill
I was far behind the rest
I’ve never been good at football
But in my head, I’m Georgie Best

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 When I went off to uni
I prayed I’d make the team
To have a regular game in my life
Had always been my dream

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 But I didn’t make the cut
Inevitably, I was sour
But then, I’ve never been good at football
But in my head, I’ll always be Beckenbauer.
