1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Long before Carlsberg
And Big Macs to go
Long before Sky
And the pay per view show

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Long before Murdoch
And Tyler and Gray
Long before games
Kicking off 11 am Sunday

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Long before greed
And its corporate words
Long before names
On the back of each shirt

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Long before seats
Took the place of the stands
And myriad sponsors
Took the place of the fans

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Long before agents
And wages sky high
In the days when the striker
Used left foot, and right

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Long before football
Grew tired of its soul
Those days before football
Was ransomed and sold.
