I like to think of myself as being tough
and always able to keep a stiff upper lip
there’s not a lot of things can get me down
and I’m the one who tells people to get a grip.

I can work outdoors in all type of weather
and have never weeped watching a movie
but I think all my machismo is about to leave me
and it’s all down to my beloved Coventry City.

My Dad used to say real men should never cry
and I never saw a tear run down his rugged face
but he came from a different type of generation
when life was a lot harder for the human race.

Well sorry Dad if I’m about to let you down
but don’t worry I won’t let anybody see
but when the City do finally get relegated
I’ll do my weeping on my own with no company.

it can reach down into a fan’s very soul
I’ve seen the most mild mannered supporter
turn into a crazy madman at an opposition’s late goal.

But at the end of the day it’s just a sport is Football
and I’m sure I won’t be upset for very long
so in front of my fellow Sky Blue supporters
I’ll put on an act and pretend to be strong !
