Just Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I don’t want to copy fancy step overs
And photo shoot hairstyles
Diamond earrings and Hello interviews
Of the latest and the oh so yesterday
I don’t want logos and sponsorship spandex
Neon goalies and socks over knees
Names on boots gold silver stories
Of agents %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%…..
I just want FoOtBaLL
That’s all
Hail Rain or Shine
On the Kop with me mates
On the terrace in a blue haze of nicotine
And expletives
And one more of Kenny’s goals.



Parry Maguire (2004)

“This is Anfield”
