United Colours Of Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football comes in colours
Played in every land
A beautiful kaleidoscope
On concrete grass and sand

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Football of all colours
Red yellow green and blue
With hoops and stripes and diamonds
Freely shining through

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Football is a culture
Its home is everywhere
Its voice sings out with freedom
And this voice we all can share

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Football teaches colour
Not just black and white
And a million shades of language
Make up this rich football pitch called Life.


Parry Maguire (2004)
