Each to their own

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They Kick a ball round a pitch,
You don’t dare look away,
A goal you cannot miss,
It would make your day.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You shout at your team,
Although they cannot hear,
You block out reality,
Except to gulp your beer.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Reading the TV times,
You see there’s a match at 11oclock,
Noticing there’s just 10 minutes to go,
You freeze in your seat like rock.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 As a kid, you dreamed to be a footballer,
Wearing them shorts and red shirt,
When you realised dreams don’t always work out,
Deep down it kind of hurt.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I say “I’d rather watch paint dry”
But you just let out a huge groan,
“What a shame” your team has lost…
“Oh well each to their own”
