Mirth Mayhem & Magic

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 These groaning bones of life
With chill upon this winter earth
In search of little solstice
And a spruce of football mirth

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Keep us from the devil
And his tackling for the soul
For there’s glory in those football boots
Puer grace in every goal

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 God love you William Shankly
And the truth that hued your team
God hold the hand of Maradona
God bless the head of William Dean

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Oh, my well-worn match-day memories
Lo, the pitch of fading green
Fire my heart brimmed up emotion
With the joy that football brings.
