New age football men and women

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 yeah we’re the new age football men and women
we’re really really into everything
we never make team changes ’til we have to
and only when we’ve checked with the I Ching

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 alternative united one world one team one aim
one pint of cider vinegar just before each game
and a manager so mellow he never wears a suit
one team he suggested a crystal in each boot
but he lets us train at Avebury the atmosphere’s so fine
we jog among corn circles because it helps us to unwind

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and after one or two defeats to help us lift the gloom
we listen to whale music in our dressing room
the baths are scented lavender there’s Tai Chi at half time
it stops us being aggressive beyond the half-way line

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 and the boots the kit they’re hand-washed in Ecover
we drink spring water sometimes ginger tea
but we always hang our wind-chimes on the goal-posts
because the game’s improved so much since Feng Shui

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 now our goalie he’s a vegan he watches what he eats
he likes to wear loose clothing on Yoga type retreats
his style is based on Buddha he’s calm serene and true
he smiles upon the goal-line as every ball goes through

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 and our back four they’re all chanting the Krishna way they play
our full back’s like Saint Francis he gives everything away
the match itself is meaningless because every Saturday
we prefer to see the game in a much much deeper way

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 ’cause we’re the new age football men and women
we’re learning how to make the game more green
we’re unisex especially in the hot-tub
because it’s good for reaching out within the team

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 and we’ve learnt so much about deep-rooted anger
before each game we strip off we lie down
because we like to feel the vibe between each other
and feel the energy at every football ground
