Of Cherished Away Games.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As floodlights shine on muddy slime
You swirl hot bovril in yer mouth
The freezing cold has taken hold
Its not like this down South!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 An iron bar to lean on
Is your only friend
Your goalie won’t come for crosses
Your fullbacks can’t defend!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The rain is belting down so hard
You can barely see the pitch
As fat directors sit snugly in their box
Oh to be so rich!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The ball sticks to the gluey pitch
It never hardly moves
The players run without it
As control of it they lose!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Your clothes are soaked
You’ve had enough
You seek shelter from the rain
The away end has no cover
So you’ll have to watch the game!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Your a long way from home
Dripping wet and three nil down
You should be indoors
With the one you love
In your dressing gown!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Why do we put ourselves through this?
Its really very strange
Most of us are sensible folk
With proper working brains!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 What makes people do it?
Its funny just the same
All that angst and hardship
Of cherished away games!!!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 peace.
