To The Hedge and Back

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Relegated, dropped like a brick in a barrel
feeling lost whilst sat akin bushed and boards
last season it was stands that held thousands
this, it’s Parkgate, bushes and lines parallel

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We travel near and far in a skip like motor car
stories to tell, people to see and friends to make
if there are no steps, no impediments, we may get a jar
I bet there will be places sadder than this, even more afar

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 as people come and go, football ploughs on
we must remember them, do it in their name
for i’ts only a ball, whether big or small,
till the whistle then it’s game on
whether they’re here or not, in memory we will win
even if we get there in a Vauxhall bin.
