Pitchless Blade

Football just in’t the same
behind virtual doors:
a flat screen can’t capture
that reyt roarin rapture
at beautiful downtown Bramall Lane

Football just in’t the same
without filled up senses:
no sweet taste of victory
no making of history
at beautiful downtown Bramall lane

No, it just in’t the same
without cool, draught Magnet:
divine froth of gladness
to sooth all our sadness
at beautiful downtown Bramall Lane

Football just in’t the same
without Praise or Grumble:
no Greasy Chip Butty
no home ground of Curry
that’s beautiful downtown Bramall Lane

Football just in’t the same
without our Captain Blade:
no chanting of Woodbine
no pinching of snuff time
at beautiful downtown Bramall Lane

Football can’t be the same
behind virtual doors:
but for now we must catch
a poor substitute match
from beautiful downtown Bramall Lane
