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!



I’m sure it must have happened?
