This Time?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I swore I wouldn’t buy the shirt
Fly the flag or don the scarf
I swore I wouldn’t watch through fingers
I’ll keep my poor heart off the park

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I will not buy those glossy mags
Those bracelets face paints alice bands
I will not sing those dodgy anthems
Whose tunes and words none understand

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I said I dont care if we win
Or lose or draw I just dont care
My pulse won’t quicken with free quicks
If Beckham cuts or grows his hair

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I wont ink up my skin with tats
Display with pride the lions 3
And yet come Sunday England expects
Who’ll be cheering? yes it’s me!



After 30 years of hurt I should know better….but hell “Come On England!”
