Funny Old Game
‘Football is a funny old game, I think to myself
As I watch the game unfold,
A game like no other’
For a start having lost the other, to a panther claw
We are forced to play, with a rugby ball
And with amusement that this does create
Damn they missed that shot, way to late
With cheaters up front, an elephant at the rear
I think we will lose, that is my fear
So bring up the monkeys, and rush the middle
Offside, Ref! You’re on the fiddle.
We would have done better, with laurel and hardy
After this match, there won’t be a party
And who put Chaplin in defense
Everyone knows he plays best in offense
Maybe we should put an ape up front
He can scare them with roars and grunt.
I cannot watch, I cannot stay
After all these fools can’t play.
Come on crowd lets have a song
“Come on now, play that ball long”.
Let us then rouse the team
They seem to be in a dream
YES! Finally we have scored
Of course this is team I adored.
I only insult them to get some action
OK, hit me, if that’s your reaction.
So now as the game comes to an ends
With red card, the Ref, a player sends,
Off, the score one – nil.
So bring out the wine
We will play better next time
Because it is football season here, I will throw this last one in just for giggles 🙂
