Valentine’s Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Roses are red, violets are blue,
I can’t see you today love, the lads are at Crewe!!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s a day when a man shows just where his love lies,
And to be honest you can’t really beat the Gresty Road pies.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’ve been going out now for quite a few years,
You know how it is, with the footie and beers.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The lads mean as much to me now, as when I was a kid,
Although they’ve broken my heart more than any girl did.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So you will understand, for once you’re a very close second,
As to the middle of Cheshire is where I’ve been beckoned.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I can’t even promise that I’ll be back home before morn,
As there’ll be drink to be had whether we’ve won, lost or drawn.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 If I’m not home in time will you tape ‘match of the day’,
And ‘the football league show’ too if that is OK?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 We can watch them on Sunday whilst cuddled up tight,
And I promise that whilst there on I won’t leave your sight.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 I might even stretch to making you a brew,
Maybe next year we can do roses are red, violets are blue.
