To The Real Support…..Hers And Those like Her!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The pace starts to slow as relationship’s flow
To get back on firm footing’s again
What she is saying right now, is invading
The void that was filled by the game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When yer dinner is cold on the table
The kitchen’s her quiet sanctuary
“I’ll be there in a minute…O my God what a finish
The Germans have just made it three”!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Is she bothered by all yer misgivings
That the nation had flopped once again?
Truth is she’d be much more forgiving
For two weeks of pulp fiction in Spain

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the flags were hauled down
By a felt hard done by crowd
Did she say that “Yer man is a cheat”
No she was much more concerned that her love
Believed what was said by that one…. David Pleat!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When it all went and ended up pear shaped
And you sat there in dejected disgrace
Did she soothe you with words of great comfort
“There now my love, wash them tear streaked union jacks off yer face”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 When the team were in tears and emotion was high
And us punters were lost as a child
She just seemed to know what to say, where to go
As it seemed too much to bear for a while

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 When ridicule, put downs and kicks in the teeth
Came forth from the panel of glee
Did she side wth the venomous hate of it all
Or wince at the sheer disbelief?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 In fact I don’t think it bothered her at all
That our own would just sit there and laugh
Whilst millions of fans were sat head held in hands
Holding limply hung flags and choaked scarves

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 The crux is I’m glad it’s all over
The truth is we never turned up
To be honest I’m back sitting in clover
In the real world with the one that I love!
