1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Michael came indoors from work
Then stopped dead in his tracks
All of his cd’s were gone
The Doors to Fleetwood Mac!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A note pinned on the mirror
Caused yer man to cry
His wife had gone and left him
Au revior, ciao, ciao, bye, bye!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ” Michael you’re a lovely man
Held high in my esteem
But I’ve another lover now
The England ladies football team ”

She never liked ‘ the game ‘
When he dragged her off to Highbury
Then sometimes to White Hart Lane!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 ‘ My passion for the beautiful game
Has almost left me skint
Not all the girls who play it
Are like Rachel Heyho-Flint’!*

Yer records and yer books
To follow game with beautiful name
Is how my future looks’

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 To have lost his wife to another man
Would have made it hard to part
But a wife whose aim, was to follow ‘ the game’
Caused…… no sadness in his heart !



*Former captain of the England womens cricket team? I Think !

More female fans, are watching the game, now than ever, according to a poll in one of the papers, it must also have a lot to do with the great success of the womens game and the increasingly high profile of the players.

Commentators are cool too !
