The Players’ Player Reflects Upon His Brief Time At The Top

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 For a time I played in the Premiership
And it was real. The money, the girls
And the millionaire lifestyle – keep
An eye on your agent is what I learned.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’m seeing out my career in the lower leagues
But I’ve tucked a bit away for later life.
If you have the skill and the desire, it could be you.
Football, my God, it’s dynamite.



Not sure this says exactly what I wanted it to say. I was trying to capture something of the thrill of being a really top-class footballer – so it’s a piece of imaginative sympathy at best. Anyway, to the guys who make our weeks, months and years with their skill and professionalism: Salut!
