T’was like a day when you part with a lover
Wondering what yer gonna do next?
Should you go to the pictures, or dive under the covers
And stay in bed feeling dejected?

Two minutes silence brings tears to the minces
As red poppies stand free in the wind
Drunks streaming in stand shoulders back listening
For outrage. But no one today dares to sing.

At nil one we hung out the white flags
Our heads like the cliche dropped down
Nil two stirred up anger amongst the home fans
Nil three? An exodus was leaving our ground.

Them Mackems destroyed us to lay down their ghost
Of failing to win on our ground
And we’ve shed load of reasons, lame excuses and prose
For failing to turn the game round.

Old familiar shouts rang out loud in the night sky
“Ancellotti you’re a total disgrace”
Tempers flared up almost causing a few fist fights
As scared kids looked on, embarrassed by dad’s angry face.

As I’d debated going to “The Football” that morning
When I first saw the rain lashing down
I’m glad that I did to at least show my respect for the fallen
Though in defeat I’ve lost respect for some of those in our crowd!
