Footballers Got Religion
Footballers Got Religion

How come footballers are pointing to heaven,
Genuflecting and kissing the ground?
Have I missed a heavenly pronouncement,
That to them that was something quite profound?

He’s making the sign of the cross one minute,
And next he’s rolling around trying to con the ref.
They’ll square up to one another aggressively,
And forget that their shirts are sponsored by Unicef.

Are they born again Christians? Have they found the Prophet?
The most unlikely of characters are looking to the Gods.
By half time they’ll be booked for kicking an opponent.
And 50,000 people will be screaming they are dirty sods.
