Rollercoaster Mesmerising

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 rollercoaster mesmerising
gung-ho goals show tantalising
like some throw back from before
like some fifties sixties score
just like you’re a kid again
out there in the sun and rain
game so open from the start
both sides being ripped apart
soft defences common sense is
leaft like banners on the fences
so swashbuckling in attack
still so shaky at the back
never safe at two goals up
felt like Derby in the Cup*
felt like Torquay New Years Day**
back three back four disarray
entertainment off the charts
from sublime to mad in parts
you score one and we’ll score one
nine goals going in for fun
we score six and you score three
is this how it’s meant to be ?
even with our final goal
still not really in control
was there something in my pie
pinch myself and dry my eye
barely time to cheer or speak
I could take this ev’ry week
never boring when I’ve been
up here watching Forest Green
