THE PRICE OF THE PIES

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Midweek, mid-table, midway between hope and despair…
to put your fans through this torment is hardly very fair

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And then, as Half Time looms on this freezing cold night,
we follow the throng to the smell and the light

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 of the fast food, fat-food, fad-food stand,
dishing out alsatian burgers and semi-hot dogs upon demand,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 but, as if the football wasn’t grim enough to take,
we have to put up with flat pop and stone cold fries,
horse-sausage rolls and meat laughingly called steak-
and have you seen the bloody price of the bloody pies?!
