Meet me at the turnstile

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hey Bolton dream seller what’s going on
Tell us, what more dreams have we left?
We came along, but it’s going wrong
Pretty soon we’ll all be bereft.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You’ve never met us, but don’t you forget
We turn up each week, come what may.
We’re asking why, do our dreams not fly
And we’re wondering why we still pay.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Meet me at the turnstile when the floodlights are turned on
And I’ll be there, I promise I’ll be there.
In the rain and snow we will stay cheering ‘till the dawn
We all have dreams we need to share.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Lay down your egos, your greed and club minders
And share the dreams of the crowd.
You’ve got the time, just join in our rhyme
And we’ll sing your praises out loud.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Meet me at the turnstile when the floodlights are turned on
And I’ll be there, I promise I’ll be there.
In the rain and snow we will stay cheering ‘till the dawn
We all have dreams we need to share.
