The Parable of The Boy In The West

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I don’t have the same back story as most
When it comes to following my team
I wasn’t raised on pork pies and chips
As I followed away day dreams

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 See, my Dad is a Manchester United fan
Which doesn’t hold much shame
But when you live in the heart of West London
You don’t get to see much of the game

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So when it came to picking the side I favoured
I had to give it thought
But in my teenage years, I found a team
Into whom I well and truly bought

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I can only have been 14 or so
When I realised
That I was a lion through and through
And Millwall were my pride

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Despite growing up in the West of the city
I’ve always belonged to the Pride
It’s in my blood and in my heart
To support this south-east side

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 ‘Cause I come from a quiet corner of town
And my life needs something loud
I’m a Millwall fan, and even if I’m not always grateful
I’ll definitely always be proud.
