The Only Way!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’ve been there,
Down to the abyss,
In the season of dire frustration
Season to forget,
Nightmare is over
This season, the only way is up!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Days of inept strikers
Of chances gone begging,
Defensive frailties,
Cause of many defeats snatched
From the jaws of victory,
Of nervous breakdowns
And many grown men crying,
Are history
The only way is up!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Season of wise spending
On hungry and battle hardened
Brave hearts brought
In dream of a winning streak,
In this promotion winning season
The only way is up!


Written for Middlesbrough F.C before the first home game v Ipswich Town on Aug 7th..
