Late Expectations

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 late expectations
but it’s always the same
brand new season
but it’s getting more insane
transfer madness
give the fans a name
one more reminder
it’s a money old game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 checking out the rumours
most of them lies
stars being touted
with money in their eyes
denials denials
is it no surprise
loyalty and futures
are never the prize

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 badges that were kissed once
by players long gone
long-term commitment
until it went wrong
names on shirts
that we never wore long
wiped from the memory
time to move on

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 chuck another big name
into that pile
pounds equals goals
money equals style
satisfy the punters
anyone’ll do
names ending “a” “e”
“i” “o” or “u”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 meanwhile academies
nurture those here
local grown skills
that’ll never quite appear
always the name game
ticket sales and fear
I’m a local player
get me out of here

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 late expectations
but it’s always the same
brand new season
but it’s getting more insane
transfer madness
give the fans a name
one more reminder
it’s a money old game
