She’ll Go To The Match…… With Him!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When she said that she was leaving me
I had to make a choice
I could sit around and mope all day
Or go and see the boys

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So for three hours that final Saturday
Instead of sitting sad indoors
I went and watched me idols,
I stood at White Hart Lane and bawled

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 After getting home from the game
The house felt really strange
There’s a note pinned on the mirror
Next to fixture list of games

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It told me she had another love
And that he was the one
I’d been dumped and then been cheated on
By a geezer from South London

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 She’s with a Crystal Palace fan
She goes to every game
But then football in South London’s
Not the same as White Hart Lane

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 She could have had the lot with me
Travel, love, my all
But there’s some places I won’t go
To watch the Spurs perform

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Now Palace is added to that list
Since sadly we did part
Every time that they get beat
It soothes my broken heart

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 I play her all favourite records
So poignantly they start
I even learned to cook for her
Try my chicken a la carte?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 She’s gone and on
I must get with me life
Though I wish her well
I can tell that Palace are in strife

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The Spurs star now is rising
Whilst their’s is on the wane
She could be sitting at White Hart Lane with me
Taking in the game

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Although I jest I tried me best
And will not stoop to malice
But there’s one thing I will not do
Thats go and watch Crystal Palace!
