The Ecological Footballer

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m sometimes quite illogical
I’ve been called mythological
I’ve got more geological
through playing distant teams
I’m getting technological
perhaps its psychological
but as for ecological
I’m not sure what that means?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 extravagance and decadence
I love it and make no pretence
nor argue in my own defence
on how we treat this place
around the ground inside the gate
along the streets we desecrate
the stuff we fans and clubs create
it swamps our towns with waste

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 but someone told me long ago
and yes it moved me ever so
the world’s a football don’t you know
and we are merely goals
but while we’re here we ought to try
to think of others coming by
the future’s bright but always nigh
consider other souls

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 on any football Saturdays
in any town so many ways
exist to just respect the place
this planet and its home
its flora fauna insect life
each species struggling to survive
in pubs or watching footie live
just treat it as your own

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and call it astrological
or even biological
you could be zoological
there’s so much you can do
but don’t act pathological
and not too chronological
but please be ecological
the game needs more like you!
