The Unfit School Team Player

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Fast and vibrant, physical and fun
In the wind, rain ,snow and sun
Putting on the school colours
Wearing our hearts on our sleeves
The tops are really smelly and make us sneze!
Running out onto the pitch
Starting to get a stitch!
Should have come to the practises
Gosh I am sooooo unfit!
The opposition starts to load off the bus
Of course, all making a big fuss!
Complaining of the cold
Acting like they’re seventy years old!
The game gets underway
Hope we win I say,
Tackles galore
We are losing what a bore!
The final whistle has blown
The time has completely flown
We wished we had won
But we had good fun!
