Memories of Youth – the Naked Truth

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Everything’s changed
Nostalgia was better when I was small
Football used to be a game
Twenty two players, a pitch, a ball

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Now it’s sponsorship led by cash
With everchanging kits
Pay per foul and Oscar dives
Shirts have built-in tear-off strips

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So I thought I’d go traditional
Choose old fashioned Christmas presents
Check out the Subbuteo streaker sets
How’s that for natures essence?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Choose a male or female streaker
Attended by an officer of the law
Helmet being worn diplomatically
Eyes of dignity cast to the floor

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Innocent past time of our youth
May no longer be as in our dreams
But however childish it may be
We all love a streaker on full beam

Notes

Well done to Subbuteo for keeping up with the times. How about a
replica spontaneously combusting penalty spot or an invading Jack Russell?
