The Only Place For Me

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 where the pictures come alive
where the goalies leap and dive
on the train and into town
that’s the way to the football ground

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 where the fans all sing the latest
where the players are the greatest
there to cheer our favourites home
that’s the finest place I’ve known

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 where the ball boys are the keenest
where the grassy pitch is greenest
where we can escape so free
that’s the only place for me

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 why should I feel scared alone
why do others moan and groan
or not taste the atmosphere
that’s the thing we always share

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but forever I will go
where excitement gathers so
there inside the football gound
that’s the place where I’ll be found



Inspired by and loosely adapted from A Boy’s Song by James Hogg (1770-1835) one of my favourite all time childhood nature poems..
