The Beautiful Game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Where am I no time for thinking
All alone and there’s no one there
When Saturday comes I must be dreaming
The boys are back without a care.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Perfect day for the Beautiful Game
Play all day til it starts to rain
If you win you go home happy
In seven days you’ll be back again.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A voice of thousands singing together
All eyes set on the field of dreams
Come on now can you hear us
A wall of sound what does it mean.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The journey starts with a quest for glory
All for one and one for all
yesterdays boys are not forgotten
tomorrow’s boys will rise and fall.


The poem has recently been put to music and is part
