The Greatest Game We Never Saw

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 the greatest game we never saw
and just our luck to be top drawer
surpassing all that fell before
the greatest game we never saw

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 beyond the sofas and the homes
reduced to radios and phones
or pubs more used to groans and moans
we listened in – confused – alone

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 no Christmas package came from Santa
no pre-match nerves or fam’ly banter
but those few folk who had Setanta
they watched the lads win at a canter

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 we searched for cov’rage ev’rywhere
terrestially reduced to care
for Lost In Austen or to stare
no highlights even in my hair

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 while we were all convinced and sure
of same ol’ England like before
and could not quite believe the score
the greatest game we never saw

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 that greatest game we never saw
and just our luck to be top drawer
surpassing all that fell before
the greatest game we never saw

OK the pub..and ok it’s all pay for view..digital ..boxes …computer tvs…blah blah blah…but will we evenutally lose everything ?…England home games ony eh..first the cricket next the FA Cup Final ..can we hang on to the Boat Race?….i dunno – .this country!
