Another player gets a turn,
Aims straight at the net and… GOAL!
The ball’s back in play and the other team has it,
Passing by our team and hits our player square in the face,
The game’s stopped penalty to our team,
Two nil to us we have just scored,
Three minutes left, rapid play of the ball,
We score, final whistle blows.

They walk out in a zig zaggy line, drunk,
Talking complete nonsense about how many goals they have scored and getting angry if someone’s scored more,
