Mismatch in the post-match pub

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 She was a beautiful barmaid,
Getting our pints in a lather after the match.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I was buzzing from the rare win
Away in the Big Smoke.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Happy-drunk, I tried it on.
Did she want to come up to Doncaster for the weekend?
Bed and breakfast provided, plus 10 pints and a kebab.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 She smiled,
Which was nice,
But said no.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 It was then that I realised,
It was not to be,
And in that age old mismatch of the genders,
She’d skinned me down the wing.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And so:

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Men are Mark Venus,
Women are Overmars.

Notes

Hmmm.
