alexthomasdavis – The Beautiful Game lyrics

I wish my love for you was the same
As my love for the beautiful game

Keep the ball
Long or short
Stand up tall
Don't be caught
Play in holes
In the gaps
Score some goals
From the scraps
Hold it up now
For a while
Pass the ball and
Use your guile
Bring it down
On your chest
And volley it
Like georgey best

    This song is about loving football more than your girlfriend. As Bill Shankly said, football is more important than life! Or something along those lines! Anyway, it has some nice rhyming in parts, and a good la la bit the end.. Its possibly about Stef, too :) :) :) :P
