The Passion and Madness of Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh, the passion and madness of football
The saints and the sinners we love
The golden gods seated above us
With their bright boots and warm knitted gloves

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The swaying of life is an ocean
From terrace to terrace o’er the land
And we sing with our throats purging hymns
Raising the rooves off the stands

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Where poets and scribes drunk on moonshine
Resplendently scribbling for joy
Conjure the goals and the titles
In the dreams of each girl and each boy

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Up on our feet with our banners
In whose nets we are helplessly caught
Oh, the passion and madness of football
Makes penniless fools of us all.
