Wake me up when August comes

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Football season is now ending
Saturdays for a while won’t be the same
so now I’ll get the usual withdrawals
without my fix of going to a game.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sometimes I wish I could be like a Hedgehog
then I could just go and hibernate
so when the new campaign kicks off
I could awake refreshed and feeling great.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Tennis and Cricket I guess are fine Sports
but to me only when you can play
because I find watching them as a spectator
they’re both dull,tedious,and Grey.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So I’m going to ask my Doctor for a potion
which will knock me out when Wimbledon is on
then I can dream about Football while under
then arise when the Tennis has gone.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I can watch Golf for about Fifteen minutes
before I find myself falling asleep
as for viewing hours of that
I’d end up morose and wanting to weep.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But I’ll have to end this poem now
as the pills are starting to kick in
and I’ve asked to be brought back round
only when Coventry City get their first win !



No disrespect to lovers of “summer” Sports but to be honest unless your playing them,they come across as a little bit tedious I find.
I bet a lot of fellow Football fans wish the break was only a month as after that your getting bored and restless.
Then again my club puts us through such agony maybe hibernation should be compulsory !
