We own the diving

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Fleet-footed forwards,
and wingers of pace,
please remain upright
not flat on your face.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Unless you are injured,
do not hit the floor.
Your diving is rubbish,
I will see no more.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 If it’s penalties you’re after,
just play for a draw,
because theatrical nonsense,
is the game’s biggest flaw.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Not once in all the seasons,
while I’ve been alive.
Have I seen a game,
where only the keepers dive.
