Almost There!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Our lawn ain’t seen a mower blade
Since that fatefull Moscow night
And the house could do with a coat of paint
In royal blue and white?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our winders need a cleaning
The motor needs a splosh
And that gaping hole in the kitchen ceiling
Ain’t been looked at since we lost.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As next Saturday approaches
All the above will have to wait
As I’m busy checking out times of coaches
To newly promoted teams away.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The quare one’s gone on holiday
Leaving me with the dog and kids
I could have gone, with her, but my priorities
Lie, welcoming Big Phil to Stamford Bridge.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Am I looking forward to the coming season?
After a balmy summer without any sun
I am indeed, and me one sole valid reason
Is …. the count down to ecstasy’s begun!



I just can’t wait, whatever our fate, I just can’t wait.

Whoever you may follow, get right behind your team
Enjoy games if they’re boring draws, and enjoy exciting wins
And if you lose, that’s part of it and ever more will be
Just remember, you’ll get another chance to put it right next week!
