What is this game so full of care,
we’re not allowed to stand and swear?
Not allowed to kick some striker’s shin,
who cares for rules, I want to win.
Not allowed to argue, though we’re always right,
else booked by the ref for starting a fight.
Not allowed to shoot an evil glance,
and two footed lunges – not a chance!
Not allowed to wait ’till your defence can,
perfect the formation your manager began.
A poor game is this, so full of rules,
referees are a bunch of fools.
