The Greatest Game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 THE CROWD AWAIT, ITS KICK OFF TIME,
WITH NOISY FANS, THE TEAMS ARE PRIMED
IT’S UNDERWAY, THE CHANTING STARTS,
“COME ON YOU BLUES, RIP OUT THEIR HEARTS”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ATTACKING PLAY, WE`VE COME TO SEE,
WITH GOALS GALORE, WE`LL SETTLE FOR THREE,
BUT HALFWAY IN, WE’RE ONE NIL DOWN
IT’S WELL OFFSIDE, THE REFS A CLOWN

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 IT JUST CAN’T BE, HE’S JUST NOT KIND
THIS USELESS REF, HE MUST BE BLIND
WE URGE THE TEAM, JUST DON`T GIVE UP,
AN IMPORTANT GAME, THIS FA CUP,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 THE FINAL MINUTE, ONE LAST CHANCE,
A KICK UPFIELD, THE TEAM ADVANCE,
THE STRIKER TURNS, GOES PAST HIS MAN,
AND HITS A SHOT, LIKE WE KNOW HE CAN,

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 TO SCORE THE GOAL AND LEVEL THE TIE
THE MEN ERUPT, TODDLERS CRY,
THE WHISTLE GOES, AND I LOOK ABOVE
GIVE THANKS TO THIS GAME, I DEARLY LOVE.
