Footy Bet

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I had a footy bet
6 teams were set
All winning score
Need Rovers to draw

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Blackburn playing Liverpool
Don’t take me for a fool
Don’t care if Rovers win
Can still afford a gin

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 7 teams in a perm
99 bets is the term
There’s no complication
Just A-level permutation

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Watching the teleprinter
It’ll soon be winter
As pitches covered by frost
My bets just won’t be lost

Notes

I wrote this in the bookies, 6 of my teams on the coupon were winning
and Blackburn Rovers were playing later, so I went to Church, and when I got back, Rovers had drawn with Liverpool which I had predicted on the coupon – I won over £46 off a fiver stake
