1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Now into injury time
game heading for a draw
yippee,we’ve got a penalty
three points if we score.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The player brought down
steps up to the spot
does he look confident ?
no he does not.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Their keeper moves about
trying to put him off
the visiting fans whistle
and boo, and jeer, and scoff.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I take a deep breath
say a silent prayer
then watch in disbelief
at a ball high up in the air.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Instead of hitting the net
it sailed miles over their bar
where did it finally land ?
somewhere near Stranraer !


It was probably the worst penalty I’ve seen it was that bad, but us Coventry fans that still go to games are made of stern stuff due to what we put up with.

So in the pub afterwards we all had a laugh about it and it was the butt of the jokes all night,we’ve reached the point now that if we didn’t laugh we’d all crack up !
