We rely on you

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 like a red card needs suspension
like Viduka needs a pension
like a penalty needs tension
like an Old Firm game needs apprehension
we rely on you
like a Dalglish needs to mutter
like a groundsman needs a cutter
like a pundit needs a stutter
like an utterance involves a nutter
we rely on you
like a goalie needs to keep his nerve
like a free kick needs a wicked curve
like a streaker needs a body swerve
like Torres needs to play with verve
we rely on you
like a pie and chips needs fryers
like a waste of cash needs buyers
like a football bus needs tyres
like a Goal Machine needs ball suppliers
we rely on you
like a Scottish pitch needs heather
like a globe of air needs leather
like a Rooney’s chin needs lather
Jordi’s just Jordi without his father
we rely on you
