No Pie, No Lie

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve had my dreams smashed on posts
Seen points stolen by fortunate hosts
Last minute robbery
Prawn sandwich snobbery
But I’ve never eaten a pie at a match

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Jaundiced efforts by cowardly hearts
I’ve witnessed the whole team fall apart
Dramatic comebacks
Disbelief of the facts
But I’ve never eaten a pie at a match

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’ve been soaked to the skin
And seen the odd win
I’ve sang my heart out in the Barclay
I’ve suffered defeat and muttered darkly
But I’ve never eaten a pie at a match

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’ve seen a twenty one man melee
I’ve enjoyed watching Cantona play
Bantered with programme sellers
Argued with a ban on umbrellas
But I’ve never eaten a pie at a match

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’ve smirked at pitch invading streakers
Struggled to stay awake at bleak mid-weekers
I’ve done Mexican waves
Watched world-class saves
But I’ve never eaten a pie at a match

Notes

Whoever ate all the pies, it definitely wasn’t me!
