Showing my true colours

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They’ll be there on Saturday
in my local boozer
Rooney emblazoned on backs
of replica Man United shirts.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And even those not wearing red
will jump up now and then
every time they nearly score.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Thankfully the landlord’s a Coventry fan
and he’ll serve them in his City top
stood in front of a giant Sky Blue flag.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And I’ll be there in my Sky Blue shirt
staying impartial on the night
as there’s only one team for me.

Notes

I’ve been in pubs in Coventry and realised I’m the only one there wearing the clubs colours. I’ve seen Celtic tops, Rangers, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United. But I bet this isn’t unique just to my city, doesn’t anyone support their home town team anymore ?
