Donkey Centre Forward

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Here is a story that’s directed
To all football fans who believe
That their team is the best and above all the rest
And regularly under achieve.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When you struggle with a donkey centre forward
Who couldn’t buy a goal if he tried
In a rut he is stuck and way out of luck
And chance after chance he’s denied

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But despite being well out of form
He’s a plyer so hard to contain
One game he will thrive and possibly score five
Which is why in the team he’ll remain

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 That’s football summed up in a nutshell
These games are so hard to predict
I have to confess that you’ll need to impress
If this week your gonna be picked

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Going back to those desperate footy fans
To be honest your never satisfied
When the player you thought was the best the club bought
Who cannot get into his stride.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Last week he should have bagged a hit trick
And the fans are now on his back
Just one single goal will put him back in control
And could save the manager from the sack

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So next time you fans become angry
Remember why you’re watching the game
Whilst he’s in the team you only can dream
That one day they’ll be singing your name



Footy fans are never satisfied.
