What yer lookin at you?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There you sit comfortably in 13th place
Safe from relegation but not in the race
For cup or trophy or a European place
mid table mediocrity, bland town fc
What yer lookin at you?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Five hundred quid for season ticket days
A hundred more on shirts home and away
Three hundred smackers for digital TV
for three guaranteed live games you already see
What yer lookin at you?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You still dream of glory for your half grand
They take your cash and redevelop the stand
Then put prices up next season cos it don’t come cheap
Maintaining their, sorry! Your place among soccer’s elite.
What yer lookin at you?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Bored foreign imports who don’t give a toss
Board and chairman fixed on profit and loss
You want a striker to increase the goal tally
They want a cinema complete with bowling alley
What yer lookin at you?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Your at the edge of fashion the new rock and roll
But whatever happened to the heart and soul
As the mighty get mightier and protect their position
Is there really a future for domestic competition?
What yer lookin’ at you?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 When three quarters of chairman of these new plcs
Wake up and discover the wood for the trees
and realise what filled grounds that came out of the ark
Was the love of the fans for the team on the park
What yer lookin’ at you?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Surely they’ll finish facilities and invest in the team
these men from the city, will they share the dream?
When all things considered including interest rate
What’s your spiritual home could be their real estate
What yer lookin at now!

Notes

Inspired if that’s the word by the changing face of the business approach to a game that in my view is greatly diminished by getting into bed with corporacy and people who I BELIEVE don’t understand it.
