These Are The Ones

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 these are the ones that matter
this is the acid test
these are the ones that you don’t wanna lose
when you’re out there ahead of the rest
it’s as tight at the top as it always will be
too many good teams are here
and they’re names that you’ve known since your childhood
but you pray we can do it this year

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 in this lottery league where consistency counts
and the Tranmeres and Lincolns keep pace
it’s a really close call and another long haul
it’s a knife edge and nail-biting chase
and the moment your mind starts to wander
remember to keep your head strong
as you lift up your voice and you pump up the noise
who cares how our rivals get on

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 when the South Stand are belting their hearts out
and the main stand awake and respond
as the energy shifts and the atmosphere lifts
and we join in to cheer them along
and I know what you’re thinking and saying
there’s another three quarters to go
and none of us want to go down to the wire
but its upward and on with the show

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 but the feeling is growing and growing
it’s clear as an old country mile
and we’d love to be ten points ahead of the rest
and to dazzle our way up in style
but we’ve so far to go in this battle
for our goal to be fin’lly achieved
so batton the hatch and hang on to you hats
just believe and believe and believe
