Pal of mine back from Majorca
Was well impressed with the scene
Seems life there for a football supporter
Is a whole different can of baked beans?
Manicured lawns for the matches
Tapas and beer for the fans
Where twelve euro what ever that is
Buys a perch in a shiny new stand.
Punters who can’t get a ticket
Get a feed while they watch on TV
In a suite with a plasma screen in it
With a waiter supplying their needs.
Immaculate toilets and washrooms
Concourses state of the art
Warm humid weather as kick off time looms
With a wonderful view of..’The Park’.
“I couldn’t believe it, such order on leaving
No shouting or cheering in sight”
What no after match beering, or winding up, jeering
I wonder what that must feel like?
Sat there listening, I suppose I was jealous
Whilst this pal of mine raved on and on
Then I re-call what dear ma used to tell us:
“Son, there ain’t nuffink like being at home”.
