1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I just want a player who’s good at his job,
Doesn’t throw money at you, doesn’t shoot from his gob.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I don’t want a brand, an icon, a face,
I just want a forward who’s in the right place.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No big-mouthed night clubber, out seeking “the life”
A player who’s home nights, with children and wife.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Someone not obsessed with fast cars or fame,
A player who plays for the love of the game.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Oh, make a few quid, live a life free from rain,
But don’t ram it down my throat time and again.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Be happy, content, chase the National Shirt,
But don’t be so arrogant, or fans you will hurt.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The fans who, week in and week out, with their rages,
Put their bums on seats, bums that pay your vast wages.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Just give something back, with no cameras in view,
Give back to the game, because you want to.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 And just don’t forget, as you draw this week’s pay,

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 One day, it’ll end.
