On keepers (again)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Someone once said
“the goalies are different”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 we wear long sleeves,
and gloves all year,
and most of us
are immune to fear.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 often pivotal
always blamed,
still number one,
thats my claim.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 allowed the ball in our hands,
the world at our feet,
allowed to carry
the world’s heartbeat.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 forced to hear the cruel crowd,
but standing tall,
unphased,
– and proud.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 we’re the guardians of the network,
the best position to be had,
suffering the immense pressure,
little wonder we’re all mad.

Notes

Think of this next time you are about to insult a keeper who is not Jens Lehmann.
