My Stamford Bridge tour.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Year after year I had begged my dad
To take me to a Chelsea game
Year after year I waited
But no trip ever came.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then one weekend in London
A holiday for the family
We decided to tour The Bridge
Home to champions Chelsea.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We started in the players lounge
The footballer’s wives get the best view
Of the pitch, ground and fans
And comfy chairs too!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We moved round to the away stand
And looked out at the ground
Taking pictures of the empty stadium
Devoid of it’s usual Saturday sound.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then into the press room
Where the reporters have a free bar
And the Special One’s chair
Lacking it’s special star.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Through to the away changing room
Quite sizeable it would seem
Nice blue physio table
And walls of pale cream.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 But the home changing room opposite
Put the away one to shame
With the shirts on show
Of the Chelsea boy’s names.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Huge lockers, very spacious
Only the best shampoo in the showers
Fit for kings, gods you might say
In here you could spend hours.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Then we lined up in the tunnel
A pat on the Chelsea crest for luck
Although it was quite close to your head
Crouch would have to duck!

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Then out onto the pitch
Takes your breath away
Old chewing gum all over the away dugout
When Fergie comes to stay!

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 And the end drew near
As we finished touring in the Chelsea museum
Waxworks of Terry and Lampard
(looked nothing like ‘em!).

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Then one final photo
Of the view of the ground from Fulham Road
Next year I hope to be here
Wearing my royal blue shirt with pride, and maybe a scarf if it’s cold!

Notes

We went on this tour earlier this year in the summer. I still havn’t been to watch Chelsea yet, and after years of nagging i can only carry on nagging and hope that next year will be my year!
