Football can mirror life
with all it’s twists and turns
you never really know
what’s around the corner.
Take this weekend’s games
Bolton just never turned up
their fans getting all excited
then being let down big time.
The sun shone brightly at Blackpool
but Tangerine dreams were shattered
a season full of great expectations
as high as the town’s tower.
People, just like life, let you down
footballers do it all the time
Scholes got the red mist again
even Fergie shook his head in disgust.
Life can bring joy and heartache
and my club has given me both
but like any kind of relationship
it has it’s ups and it’s downs.
So football like life is unpredictable
you must expect the unexpected
but it’s not for the timorous soul
only the strong can keep on going.
