are we in some new moon
are we peaking too soon
can these forwards just never keep still?
from Fulham to Arsenal
from the Bridge to Newcastle
is six-nil the new one-nil?
and where are the tedious boring old days
when we clung to our leads for dear life
when without any fuss
we would park up the bus
and time-waste to simply survive?
so let’s not start slating defenders
those nets are all waiting to fill
may the next musketeer
be more cavalier
and make six-nil the normal one-nil
let the pundits all bang on forever
with their tedious breakdowns and blame
thank god you can’t hear
all that stuff in your ear
when you’re actually there at the game
let’s turn a blind eye to posession
let’s dance like they do in Brazil
no more with the boring
go on with the scoring
now six-nil’s the new one-nil?
