What is a football fan ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You ask what is a football fan ?
Then ask my granda, ask my gran
My aunty Rita, my uncle Stan
My nephew Liam, my cousin Dan.
The bloke next door and all his clan
Every one a football fan.
All the lads and lasses down the pubs
Wearing the colours of their favourite clubs.
The postman, The milkman
All the kids in our street
Wearing replica shirts with a ball at their feet.
The young lad who cleans our windows
A huge United fan
And not forgetting Mario
In his ice cream van, decked out in the colours
Of Inter Milan.
And so to all those intent on trouble
Please issue life time bans
We dont want their kind around
Not us, true football fans.



If anyone out there wants to google PILLARBOX MEDIA you can watch a short trailer of a new DVD i have just finished making called VERSES UNITED which will be released with the help of NUFC next month. Thanks.
