The Price Of…. Fame!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When the effing and blinding gets too much to bear
And the early departures are blocking the stairs
Spare a kind thought for twenty two blokes
Who’s lifestyle is tacky and graces Hello!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Next time you question his wages,
Commitment or love for ‘the shirt’
Think how long is it? It must have been ages
Since that exclusive in The News Of The World

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When the interviews, post match, get you snoring
Same syllables, different accent, new face
Do you feel your idols, are incredibly boring
Unless performing on that lovely green space?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We all like to think we’re important
A fault, sadly found in us all
But this fame thing’s getting out of proportion
It’s just blokes, who do what? Kick a ball!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Nobel peace prize winners? None of it
The dedication of a doctor or nurse?
Give me another five grand or I’ll run for it
Two grand more, I’m obsessed with new shirt

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 It’s said that most footballers have brains in their feet
That life to them’s, nowt but a game
When you’re drinking warm Bovril in your cheap plastic sat
Think of Warhol, fifteen minutes and….fame!
