Playing Away!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He’s met a frau I don’t know how
As he watched the Germans play
But her indoors knew nothing
Of yer mans affairs away

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When the World Cup was over
He did’nt seem that bothered
At the sad England display
Much to his wife’s astonishment
The next day? Right as rain

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No moping round the house for days
No looking all moroser
The children became kinder
His idol was now Klose

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He enrolled himself in night school
Getting taught Der Deutsch
But her indoors was still in the dark
About the other frau his lover

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 He’d talk in his sleep of Hannelore,
Schellinger and Seeler
His wife saught solace from her ma
“It’s a midlife crisis dear”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 On family holidays
He’d be the first one on the beach
Spreading all the towels out
On deckchairs within reach

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Week-ends were spent on Ryanair
“Tasting German art for college”
But in honesty the only taste he really got
Was for that of carnal knowledge

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Jet-lagged, tired and worn out
Mondays were a drag
Her indoors was on his case both night and day
All she did was nag

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Hamburg flags were stuck up
Where Union Jacks had been
Klinnsman’s portrait now stood proud
Sven? Dispatched to bin

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 She never cottoned on, his wife
As she made his saurkraut
Even when copies of Bilde and Neu
Were delivered to the house

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 His season ticket at Stamford Bridge?
Cancelled then and there
All future weekends played away from home
With help from Ryanair

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 The morale of this story?
I’m not sure there’s one….perhaps
But if yer man goes chasing glory and the frau’s abroad
You’d best go with him to….. the match!
