When Seasons End

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It could have been so different
It could have gone our way on the night
but still in the hindsight of reflection
a season spent punching above our weight
and a season lived without fear
is something
to be grateful for

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 but still it’s hard
in a jumping South Stand
drumming with the lads
on a beautiful clear night
high on this hill
to be down to ten men again and chasing shadows
where vegan sausages join the menu
where crammed fans stand on three sides
while sheep graze oblivious in the field beyond

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 but still it’s progress
the Play Offs can wait for another year or so
and let’s face it bottom line
Tranmere were better than us
we go again

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I could bang on and wax lyrical
on a ref who forgot we were playing too
or our one time talisman and hero
but now pantomime villain
James Norwood
the queue for chips
or even how Mike Dean
the maverick man in the middle
from another few levels up
yes that Mike
the one we loved to loathe
standing there on that terrace rail
pumping the air screaming “off off off”
doesn’t sit right …
but i’ll leave that to the conspiracy theorists out there
and leave you with the song we sang all night
the one we’ll sing again and again
come August and beyond
’cause that’s what fans do
when seasons end
and when new ones begin

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 the club up on the hill
the little village team
from Barrow down to Eastleigh
now we’re in the Football League
Mark Cooper and Scott Lindsay
The fields of Nympsfield Road
We’re following the Rovers
Wherever they may go…

Allez Allez Allez
