2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Practice penalties, practice penalties,
Bang it in the hole of the goal of the enemy’s.
Practice penalties, practice penalties,
Spank it in the corner, not in the crowd.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now’s no time to nip to the brickery,
Get your grip on dead-eye dickery,
Practice penalties, practice penalties,
Peppering the paintwork just not allowed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Don’t just tap with slap-dash flappery,
Crack that knack of spot-kick smackery,
Whack it in the back of that onion sackery,
Practice penalties for crying out loud.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 This ain’t a poke in the hope of a lottery,
This is death or glory shottery,
Blast it past and grasp that pottery,
Practice penalties, practice penalties, PRACTICE PENALTIES!!
Or don’t come back.


I am a forty-one year old Leeds fan living in Taunton (yeah I know!).
Anyway, I have written a book of comic verse entitled “A LIFE OF RHYME” which I am currently trying to get published, and I thought you migh this poem for your site. It was written just before the World Cup, but they still did’nt listen…..
