Rock & Roll Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hendrix covers little wings
Whilst Elvis just gets fat
Little Richard pounds the net
Chuck Berry sees to that

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Jerry Lee with balls of fire
Such goals he scores and makes
Jim Morrison just stands and glares
And dreams of William Blake

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Lennon in his green and white thinks
Red would suit him more
Bill Haley runs around the clock
Whilst James Dean turns to score

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Fast as lightning all in black
Last Vegas Elvis Show
Carl Perkins in his blue suede boots
Runs rings around Big O

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Eddie Cochran signs for blues
Guy Mitchell missed a pen
Paul McCartney’s yesterday’s man
No changes there then

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s Cash in goal he walks the line
Hank Williams starts to cough
Kerouac makes his one last run
Jack Daniels pegs him back

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Joplin pulls down Bobby Magee
And sees her chances lost
Redemption near she rises up
She climbs but fails to cross

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Keith Richards with a vampire’s eye
Plays Ruby Tuesday wide
And when Jack Flash pours down on goal
The whole team scream “OFFSIDE!”

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Bob Dylan tackles Mr Jones
He’s through it’s one on one
Bowie thinks the lad’s insane
But Guthrie cheers him on

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Eminem good in the air
He rises 8 miles high
He mixes it with Britney Spears
And calls for Dr Dre

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 The terrace chants and sings for more
But off the players rush
You’ll find them all at Waterstones
Busy signing books!
