Rhythm of the Game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football is the rhythm, and football is my life
Every day of every week of every year
From the stadia and stars to the experts in the bars
I will head, I will tackle, I will clear.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 On the terraces at City I can feel the rhythm too
As I watch the reds run out on to the grass
While I sing up for my team, in a wild promotion dream
I’ll accelerate, I’ll dummy, I will pass.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Something keeps me going through the pain and through defeat
Cos I know I’ve got the magic in my soul
I can feel it in the freedom when the ball is at my feet
I will dribble, I will run, I’ll head for goal.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And then back to the park again, where jumpers mark the posts
And kids become the players they adore
Now I know what I can be, with the rhythm deep in me
I will aim. I will shoot. I will score.
