Testo match of the day - genesis

Released on "Spot The Pigeon E.P."
1977



There's the Reds and there's the Greens
Super slicks and has beens

They're accompanied by three men dressed in black

One's a whistle
two are flags
and quite often they're the drags
Kick the ball into the goal
they put it back.

Yes Match of the Day's
The only way
to spend your Saturday

Each side's eleven men
with numbers on their backs
But at a distance they all tend to look the same
But some own their boutiques
well they clean up every week
Inciting riots
causing chaos
such a shame!

But Match of the Day's
The only way
We spend our Saturday

And that's not all
our mates the keepers
Slippin' and sliding in the mud
Arms as long as creepers

Send him off Ref' ***!!++??
Where are your specs Ref' +++***!!!
Kick you to death Ref' !!XX**??
Oi! Are you deaf Ref' X*+X*!!?

There's a few things before we go
That I think you ought to know
Obstruction
Body Checking
heavy tackles
So put on your hat and scarf
Have a drink
have a larf'
From the terrace you can see your men do battle

Yes Match of the Day's
The only way
You can spend your Saturday

Don't forget
the trainers with their sponges
Managers with open cheques
liquid business lunches

Send 'im off Ref' ***!!++??
Where are your specs Ref' !***&&&!!!
Kick you to death Ref' !!XX**??
Oi! Are you deaf Ref' X&+X&+!!?

...Phfff! Good game 'ey
Ron?...
...D'you see that goal in the Second Half? oh!...
...Bit of a dirty tackle that
mate!...
...I reckon I should've had a bet on it myself!...
...We paid 400
0
pound for him
you realise that?...
...Oh - look out
here comes a bottle ...
...Yes
fancy a pint then? My round...
