Seven Points Ahead, Three Games to Play

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The nerves were taut, the bowels were clenched,
Mistrust and faithlessness entrenched.
But Alan Moore set us on our way,
Seven points ahead, three games to play.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But Dessie Baker scored a cracker,
And suddenly the sky turned blacker.
Our mouths hung open in dismay,
Five points ahead, three games to play.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But Davey Crawley cracked one in
To put us back on course to win
That celebration – qu’est-ce que c’est?
Seven points ahead, three games to play.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But Longford pressed and carved out chances,
Worrying in the circumstances,
We got down on our knees to pray,
Seven points ahead, three games to play.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then Weso ran and Alan dived,
Our challenge suddenly revived,
And Scouser nearly made them pay,
Seven points ahead, three games to play.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So now we play the Town again
In Longford’s omnipresent rain.
Roll on, roll on Saturday,
Seven points ahead, three games to play.
