The Keeper Saves The Day !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The sky is blue
The shirts are too
As eleven diamonds grace the home arena
A piercing whistle starts the game
Expectant fans are glad they came
As away teams fans are laughed at by hyena’s

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Lo and behold what is this?
As home team make a glaring miss
The ridiculed away team, attack and score a goal
The home fans have to sit and pray
And hope today’s not one of those days
When heartbreak comes and you can’t be consoled

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Ten minutes on the watch are left
The coach is of ideas bereft
As subs warm up to try and save the day
As clock runs out
The keeper shouts
‘If we get a corner I’m coming up okay’ ?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The skipper tells him to say put
But keeper says ‘Just shut up, shush
This home record of ours is on the line’
As he runs in to opposition box
As wily as a sly old fox
He scores the equalizer dead on time !

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The home record is still intact
Though it was close and thats a fact
The keeper has just netted a vital goal
The skipper is all smiles and jokes
As he is ribbed a thought provokes
Please don’t always do as you are told !
