Why Bother ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Football on show is poor
every match looks the same
but we keep on going back
week after week game after game.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So why bother going then
if it makes you feel this way
could it be some sort of drug
that you need every Saturday ?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 This season has been dreadful
fans slumped down in their seat
when all we want is a decent team
that’s tough and hard to beat.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In the pub after the match
finding solace in the demon drink
one fan said he’d had enough
while another talked about seeing a shrink.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But the next day it dawned on me
when the beer was replaced by Tea
that the reason I keep on going
is because I love my club Coventry.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So the next time the question is asked
at the ground or in the pub
why do you keep on coming ?
I return for the love of my club.



I imagine most fans have thought why do I bother at some time or another ?
But this has cropped a lot here in Coventry,especially this season.
In the end after several pints we all said even though we dislike the current team we still love the club.
On a lighter note one bloke said he came just to get away from shopping with his missus,so we all drank to that !
