We hope the other team don’t show up

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Steeple United haven’t won
A game for a long while.
You’d think that their supporters
Would be in denial.
Just to let you know,
So there is no confusion,
The fans of Steeple United
Are under no illusion.
They never ever, ever
Think their team will win.
They know they support the worst team
There has ever been.
If this sounds unlikely
And you think that I am wrong,
Just have a quick listen
To the words of their club song.
This song you’ll hear on their terraces
In league games or in the cup
And the title of this song is,
‘We Hope the other team don’t show up’
The song is almost as depressing
As the team’s performance is
And if you want to hear it,
It goes something like this:

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We hope the other team don’t show up
So we win by default.
That’s the only way that we see
That our losing streak will halt.
As fans we can only pray and hope
As it’s really not our fault
So please can the other team not show up
So we win by default.

Notes

Steeple United is a fictional team I just thought up. Any similarities to any other team are strictly coincedental.
