Me our kid and dad.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There are not many lads
To have this proud boast
In the same team as dad
We luckier than most

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We were on a footie tour
Down in Torquay in Devon
Dad was the Gaffer
Our kid wore 4 or was it 7

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We played Sunday Morning
I remember the red soil
Bare 11with no subs
One or two started to toil

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then on came a sub
I looked at our kid
I said thats the old man
Making his bid

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 He played on the right
For 20 mins or more
He was shooting on sight
Determined to score

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 2 – 1 with a minute to go
He hit the bar Charlton style
And after the game lets say
We heard about it for a while

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 He dined out on the fact
He’d played alongside his lads
And we did the same
Proud of our dad
