Keep It In Room 101

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 i’ve got a horrible confession to make
I once was a seventies soccer hooligan
Not something I’ve ever been proud of
Because I call myself a real football fan.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The seventies was a really crazy time
Football grounds became like battle zones
Inside the police trying to keep fans apart
Outside dodging the bottles, bricks, and stones.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It was really hard to escape it
Especially when part of a crew
On a saturday you were in it together
Running away wasn’t something you’d do.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I do feel ashamed and disgusted
That I really could have stooped so low
When really I should have had the courage
To walk away, or to just say no.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now I smile and shake the hand
Of a fan from a rival football team
Have a pint or two and some banter
And that’s reality not just a dream.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Let’s hope and pray those dark days are over
As it seems to be trying to get back in
Because there’s still a lot of supporters
Who get irate it their team fails to win.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So let’s keep the seventies in Room 101
Don’t ever let it creep back in
Yes we know to us soccer is important
But there really is more to life than a win !



This is in response to things I’ve seen and read about this season and last, but let’s hope it never ever get’s as bad as it once was.
