Save City

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 For sale: football club – 80 years old, well loved, not very careful owners….future uncertain

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Won’t someone buy City, the club in my heart?
It may seem a big gamble to take
But the game would be poorer without us, I swear
Save City, for all the fans’ sake.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’ve a pretty good squad, which we cannot afford
And a striker with two dodgy knees
The damned transfer window slammed shut on our hands
Let somebody save City, please.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We’ve got a nice ground, but it’s not really ours
And we’ll probably lose it in June
But we might make the play-offs if we can play on
Save City; you’ve got to act soon.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You may see no reason to let us survive
But small clubs are worth more than you know
There’s no magic solution – we’ve learned that by now
But you could at least give it a go.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 My team has the passion that makes football great And you know it, when push comes to shove
You’ve got four weeks to mend or break thousands of hearts –
Save City; do it for love.
