pack up your troubles

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 at one time, my old boots – were older than me!
hand me downs, that never really fitted
laces that I could barely tie, on those cold, cold days
when you could take both meanings, of the term ‘committed’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 nowadays, my boots lie dormant
unused for far too many years
trainers do the job, on 5-a-side pitches
but even their idleness, brings on impending retirement fears
