Kit Mann

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You think you’ve got problems
Well, it’s nearly three o’clock
I’m sitting here unravelling
Twenty two damp grey socks

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Some prefer the long sleeves
Some short sleeves and gloves
Lycra vests and cycling shorts
And tracksuits for the subs

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Red boots, gold boots, white boots
Some with studs, some blades
Lay on drinks with bendy straws
Pints of Ribena and Lucozade

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Shorts and shin pads, a bobble hat
I stay cool, like a cucumber
The Stars go off to twinkle on Sky
But, to me, they’re just a number

Notes

Kit Mann. Man of many parts. He could tell some tales but he doesn’t do his dirty washing in public. Mud, sweat and tears, he’s the king of spin-cycle.
