Red Card

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A red card for divers
Who roll around in the box
Like they’ve been ignited
And blown out of their socks

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A red card for racism
Keep it out of our game
A red card for sexists
And your Neanderthal brains

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A red card for corruption
Slimy handshakes and fleshy pounds
Moving goalposts around the world
Through dodgy bank accounts

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A red card for television executives
Who slurp from a satellite dish
Pick up this simple message
“Stop moving our fixture list!”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A red card for the billionaires
Who sneer in the stands
You can buy all the players
But you’ll never own the fans
