Kick It …Out (dedicated to Paul)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Kick it out, kick it out, say it out loud and… Shout
From terraces, stands and the seats
Racism has no place where our chosen team’s grace
Or in any such space where we meet

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Kick it out, kick it out, with great gusto, we… Shout
Our feelings are felt from within
All men and women are our brothers and sisters
Irrespective of creed or the colour of skin

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Kick it out, kick it out, don’t whisper it… Shout
In our cities our parks, roads and streets
So that in future years all our racism fears
End up in that one word… defeat

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Kick it out, kick it out, when you say it… Be Loud
Let them know that you will not be quiet
Too many in the past have said nothing
Then regretted their actions, post riot

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Kick it out, kick it out, if you’re different… Be Proud
It’s not all about colour of skin
People are often wrongly berated
Just for what they believe from within

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Kick it out, kick it out, don’t leave others to…Shout
On just what you feel about hate
Say it with such strength and conviction
That you won’t tolerate insults to your mates

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Kick it out, kick it out, say those three words out…Loud
Make one united almighty din
Be it lose, draw or win
Say it out loud or sing
Kick it out, kick it out, kick it out!
