OK we have enough players
For two teams of eight.
We have jumpers for Goalposts
And a pitch we did create
We have all our soccer gear on,
The sun is in the sky,
But we are unable to play
And I will tell you why.
Jeremy Widgett’s forgotten the ball
So there will be no game.
He’s really absent minded
So we’re really to blame
For leaving this important role
In the hands of Jeremy.
We should have given the task
To Steve or Jim or Me.
‘If it wasn’t screwed on,’ his mum says,
‘Then he’d forget his head.’
I wouldn’t have minded if he’d forgot that
And remembered the ball instead.
So we then go home
Without playing at all.
We’ve arranged tomorrow’s game though
And I will be bringing the ball.
