We Think They Think It’s All Over

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They think it’s all over, they’re on the pitch
But I am not really sure,
Why that is, as a games 90 minutes,
And we’ve only been playing 24.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ‘Get off the Pitch, Get off the Pitch.’
Was shouted but too no avail.
One of them said, ‘We’re Celebrating
A victory of the highest scale.’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘What victory?’ Asked the Referee
‘This game has a long way to go.
It’s goalless right now so the victor,
You couldn’t possible know.’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A celebrator replied, ‘Football
Is something we’d never celebrate.
We’re from the Chess Club Celebrating
A particularly awesome Checkmate.’
