When The National Anthems played,
Heaving multitudes on Wembley Way
Where partisans sing and sway?
A Wednesday night at Walsall
In the glamour that’s The Cup
Where the pair up front couldn’t hit a wall
And it seemed our game was up.
Maybe Mansfield one dour winter
When rain did tumble down
Where thoughts of being indoors eating dinner
Made you smile, as you almost drowned.
Shrewsbury one fine Saturday
When our Love would surely die
Yet at four nil down, the way we sang and stayed
Made the home crowd question, Why?
Three down up at Wrexham
Was an uppercut to the chin
We groggily made out way to the station
And heard we’d quickly knocked three in.
Underdogs at Old Trafford
With a snowballs chance in hell
Where we nicked a draw in a smash an grab
Made the journey home bode well.
This Love of mines had it’s ups and downs
As the rhymes above bear proof
It’s a Love seen me labelled as a clown
Left trailing in Love’s pursuit.
In an answer to why I’ve done these things
I can only say in Love…and hope
Though there is a time makes my heart still sing
Watching The Robins play The In-breds*
Beside You at Whaddon Road!
So… Shall I compare thee to a summers day,
Stamford Bridge basking in the sun?
Too right I will, but then again the name
‘Whaddon Road’ makes my heart strings hum!
