Offside?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Is it really necessary to judge people by their colour?
It just makes their emotions get duller.
For example, a black player plays ace,
But the white ref. says it’s a disgrace.
Then this starts feisty fights,
Where people punch out each other’s lights.
So can anyone tell me why we have all this hates?
When we can live together and be mates.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Wan’na play?
Wan’na play?
That’s the question that we should be asking.
But society rules us out.
Some say its peer pressure,
Others are just racist.
But the question is why?
Is it because being black is not ‘in’ any more?
Or that girls can’t kick a ball straight?
So why can you tell me, why?
