Getting Three Lions Off MY Chest

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Yet another International break
They really knock me off my stride
I’ve really had enough of England
I only want to watch my home town side.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I was once a big Three Lions fan
But now I find them irritating and a bore
And after their pathetic World Cup performance
I just can’t be bothered with them anymore.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’m just not interested in these so called superstars
Like Rooney, Terry, Ferdinand, and all the rest
I prefer to watch my team in the Championship
Than these poseurs who should have kittens on their chest.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So no more being taken in by all the hype
There’s so much a football fan can take
So instead I won’t be watching England
I’ll do some gardening with spade, fork, and rake.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 England have been overrated for too many years
That’s why they’ve won nowt since 1966
And if you believe that’s all about to change
I say balderdash, fiddle-de-dee, and fiddlesticks !


Sorry to sound like Victor Meldrew on a bad day but try as hard as I can I just can’t get excited or motivated with England anymore.
I’ll stick with my club Cov City, following England as well will probably mentally finish me off !
