Why Do We Do It?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Not all the ticket
We’re not all there
Attendances falling
Pay to view the millionaires
What do you get for your money?
Disappointment and a plastic seat
Witness idle, diving, cheats

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Like cattle, prodded to renew
Discounts for early signings
Forget about the 4-1 hidings
Shrugging and shuffling
We apologetically turn up again
Can’t explain to the wife
It’s just part of our life

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What else would you do
You have to renew
Saturdays wouldn’t be the same
Without a slice of the beautiful game
Though it’s gone stale
We always go, never fail


We’re all crazy right? Inspired by an advert by Rethink, the mental health charity, seen on a local bus.

“Call me mad because I think Norwich City will win the league, not because I have schizophrenia”
