Strange as it may seem, I once had my football dreams
When my classmates picked their teams
Life just tripped me and clattered and kicked me
Now I feel like I've won the cup every time that we
Forty-five minutes each way, at halftime I hear a brass
The boy done good, the girl done better
The sky is still blue and tomorrow is another day
Be covered in mud
For one of life's eternal subs
Taste of that stuff
In some grudge match against his club
Boots away
Of the day
