No Game Today

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 OK we have enough players
For two teams of eight.
We have jumpers for Goalposts
And a pitch we did create

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We have all our soccer gear on,
The sun is in the sky,
But we are unable to play
And I will tell you why.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jeremy Widgett’s forgotten the ball
So there will be no game.
He’s really absent minded
So we’re really to blame

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 For leaving this important role
In the hands of Jeremy.
We should have given the task
To Steve or Jim or Me.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 ‘If it wasn’t screwed on,’ his mum says,
‘Then he’d forget his head.’
I wouldn’t have minded if he’d forgot that
And remembered the ball instead.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So we then go home
Without playing at all.
We’ve arranged tomorrow’s game though
And I will be bringing the ball.
