Relegation Survival

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 the big kick-off accentuates the fervour
those that cannot play – act as observer
for those that can, the burden of preserver
relegation survival

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 affect the look of men possessed
watched on by the much distressed
now elate the once depressed
relegation survival

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 wear their hair with alice band
have the look of the perma-tanned
but finally they understand
relegation survival

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 as forwards begin to purr
and much needed goals become de rigeur
can we clamber back to where we were
relegation survival
