Price of Tickets

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The season’s almost over
The last game now in sight
A student loan dont go so far
The matches done me, right?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A season ticket waiting list
As long as long is long
“It comes up with yer bus pass La”
The man said, he’s not wrong

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 PTS and fancards
Turnstiles slowly creak
But its not the sound of money there
Outdated that, it’s cheap

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So try yer luck at Liverworld
The jesters hats and scarves
The board dont care its money La
Pay per View they want

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I went the matches with me Dad
We q’d then paid in notes
He’d pass me on his shoulders La
And I’d sing for my heroes

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But now I go and spend all day
On phones and wait in line
For tickets costing twice the earth
Christ poverty’s a crime

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The loyalty schemes are TV screens
And bonus points a scam
You can’t stand with your mates no more
And singin’s almost banned

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The atmosphere is rarely there
The flags and banners still
Yet will I pay my season’s bill La?
I support, of course I will.
