Looking Upwards To The Top

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The programme says we need the points
Tells of injured limbs and broken joints
But all of this is folly
If the boys start scoring goals

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The bottom is approaching fast
If we’re not careful, we’ll be last
The managers not jolly
As he looks toward the dole

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 This mire is dire
Our strikers not on fire
He looks the part and must soon start
To get a glut of goals

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 If not, then our bolt is shot
Then we’re looking at the drop
Wages cuts and contract chops
Plus all that other rigmarole

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Down here near the bottom
The top looks far away
Each week I feel more rotten
As I worry who will stay

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The fans are all in turmoil
The board have wasted dough
As fast as it comes in through the turnstiles
It sprouts wings and off it goes

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Who’ll be playing here next year?
What a worry and a fear
Al this is becoming
As we head toward the drop

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The sun, it never seems to shine
Or ease your sad and troubled mind
When your sitting at the bottom
Looking upwards to the top

Notes
