It’s A Bit Late To Be Telling Us Now!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Forget about metatarsals
Inept managers and WAG’ers
Them nights we met disaster
Or that dentist chair and Gazza

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sudden death penalty misses
To the Germans, Portuguese
Rivals blowing farewell kisses
As we met our Wounded Knee.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Stuck in front of the telly
As a divot spoiled our dreams
After pleading “Please lads win in extra time
As we ain’t a shoot out team”.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Post big game depression
When that chance you had was missed
Then finding out, half of them so called professionals
Spent the previous evening blitzed

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Coming down for breakfast
Once again an also ran
And she says” Well what were you expecting
After all, it’s just a game!”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Sat in work well gutted
With a red top on your knee
With the headlines “England team get stuffed”
In big black type, for all the world to see

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 World Cup tears us punters cried
As early flights were booked for home
Beck’s has said the chaps wern’t taking it serious as a side
Oh that makes it alright then Dave, but I wished to God I’d known!



Please tell me somebody out there, that I’ve completely misunderstood
David Beckham’s comments “that we’re taking it serious again”. Under Fabio Capello’s leadership?
