1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 what’s new season show me change ?
bring back heroes and our game
greed still endless still beg caution
lessons learned Olympic proportions
summer filled with breaks in rain
football season’s back again

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 back page rumours club denies
stars act cagey neat disguise
expectation still the same
transfer madness fees insane
get whatever no disguise
past future same old lies
once kissed badges player gone
long-term service what went wrong?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 big new name in on the pile
big ’em up now change the style
academies struggle here
local grown skills don’t appear
needy punters crave the new
names that end “a” “i” “o” or “u”
play for the shirt don’t lasts long
wiped from mem’ries time moves on
marquee signing ticket sales fear
I’m a new legend get me outta here

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 what’s new season show me change ?
bring back heroes and our game
greed still endless still flag caution
lessons learning Olympic proportions
summer filled with breaks in rain
football season’s back again
