Responsibility

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Raise your hand and get the nod
Get on your feet and pray to God
Too late now you asked to be picked
Go put the ball between the sticks

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A big deep breath, block it out
With the ball you must place or clout
Baying fans with faces of contempt
You’re just a place for their anger to vent

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The keeper is looking so tall
But you’re the one who holds the ball
It seems you have everything to lose
And you do, if you miss we’ll sing the blues

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Just go ahead and whack it in
You can determine if we win
Team-mates transfixed, they’ve played their part
Captivated by this penalty art.
