The surly footballer

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He gets paid a lot of money
for kicking a ball about
but he looks miserable
and acts like a lout.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He is called a bit eccentric
and he’s just misunderstood
they say he’s a lovely lad
and all his ways are good.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But he causes so much trouble
on and off the football pitch
his attitude is I can do what I like
because I’m a player who’s very rich.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 “Why is it always me ? ” he moans
after he’s stamped a players head
it was just another accident
that’s why I never got a Red.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Great players like Greaves and Best
had you up and out of your seat
they played like they enjoyed it
scoring goals with head and feet.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 His fans think he’s a superstar
but really he’s just a spoilt kid
and if I was his clubs manager
I’d say now is the time to get rid !



i can’t stand arrogant players who strut about and who think they can do what they like.
Balotelli maybe a talented footballer but his attitude is so wrong.
I mentioned Best and Greavsie but there are many other greats who had character but played like they were being paid for doing something they loved, but he acts like he wants to be somewhere else !
