My Worst Nightmare

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I had an awful nightmare
I woke up in a sweat
My heart was really racing
My clothes were ringing wet
I dreamt there was no football
Not one game in the land
For in my worst dream of all time
Football had been banned!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The stadiums had all been closed
The pitches all dug up
Old ladies all grew flowers now
Inside the F.A Cup
Footballs had been flattened
And mascots all set free
And football players without jobs
Were sent away to sea

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It was a huge disaster
The Worst nightmare of all
‘Cause what would you and all do
If there was no football?
