Meet Me On Down At The Football Café

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 meet me on down at the football café
grab yourself a table any time of the day
young fans and poets the old and the grey
chatting with a coffee in the football café

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 down at the place where the time stands still
down at the place where the die-hards chill
reminiscing matches if you’ve got the time to kill
frothy coffee latté and footie on the bill

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 take me on back to the days back when
you and I were little maybe nine or ten
totally obsessed with the team back then
still felt the passion when i saw you again

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 you and me sitting in the football café
old scarves and photographs of games of yesterday
greasy chips and coffee when the juke-box would play
Elvis and The Beatles in the football café

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 meet me on down at the football café
we can while the moments and memories away
cup-ties tough guys and players of the day
conversation heaven at the football café

every town has one…does yours?
