Thirty Thousand Coventry City supporters
packed tightly into our Football Ground
Sky Blue scarves waved so proudly
and the fans making an awesome sound.
It felt good to be amongst them
my club shirt worn with pride
I felt like I did many years ago
the era when we were a good side.
I saw the excitement on young faces
as they watched their heroes play
I could imagine what they were thinking
that they may be them one fine day.
But football can be a very cruel game
it has a habit of slapping you in the face
you can end up in total despair and agony
and wish you were in another place.
As our beloved team failed to score
in fact they went and let us all down
we were beaten three goals to nil
so we left wearing an almighty frown.
But Saturday is yet another day
as we go through it all again
will the Sky Blues bring us joy
or another dose of misery and pain ?
There’s only one way to find out
and that is by going and turning up
anyway we didn’t want to go to Wembley
as we have already won the F.A.Cup !
