Young Boro Fans

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Young Boro fans,
Boro born or following the footsteps
Of a Boro ex-pat, whoever you are
wherever you are,
Spare your self the sleepless nights
Pain upon pain
And the tears
Don’t cling on to an impossible dream
Happy memories for a Boro fan
Are far and few.
You’re young, be brave
Breakaway from this
Cycle of seasonal self inflicted punishment
Where trouble is everyday and
days of happiness are few,
We the true Boro fans or
Sometimes called dinosaurs
Dreams of glory days
Of memories, some force fed
By fathers and grandfathers
When Boro used to win
Six games in a row
Young Boro fans,
Be brave
Breakaway and follow your star
Spare yourself all the heartaches
Be happy follow the sport of
Synchronized swimming or even watch
Paint drying.
