Especially when it’s a goal!
We cheer and we are filled with happiness.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But wait, he stands out!
Oh, he’s a different colour.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He’s a different colour.
But does that really matter.
He scores the goal.
He makes it feel good.
He’s a different colour
but that’s fine with me!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I had a dream that white people,
Indian people, chinese people, black people
could come together on this heavenly earth.

would stop being racist to black people
and causing all this commotion on the earth.
There’s a space.
There has to be a place for every human race.
For every single person.
Kick it out. Don’t shout. We know what it’s all about.
I can tell how they feel. It’s true and its real.
Can’t you tell what they’re going through. Don’t think about yourself.
Kick it out. Don’t shout. We know what it’s all about.
I have seen them and watched them care, it’s ok we’re there.
Take interest. It’s not a joke. Kick it out or you’ll be out.
On football matches they get called names which is not fair.
U can tell how they start to feel sick.
Time passes so do we kick it out or be unrealistic.

It’s not right or fair.
Comments like that are a disgrace.
Kick it out of football for good.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 It’s stupid and dumb and won’t help you win.
They’re just like us, nothing different.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Oh, don’t you think it’s stupid?
Unhappy faces. That’s what this causes.
Time to stop if for good!
