The Lyrics

SOCCER FAN

I love my football don’t you know
Every week at 3.00pm
And all the lads are smashed as a rat by then.

I love the game so much, but not the wife
She hates it and hates me
On match day afternoons.

But I know I’ll never give it up for her
The thought of doing that is quite absurd.
I’m not a man to sit and watch TV
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a soccer fan,
Soccer fan screaming from the terrace beer in hand.

But I know I’ll never give it up for her,
The thought of doing that is quite absurd;
I’m not a man to sit and watch TV,
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a soccer fan,
Soccer fan screaming from the terrace beer in hand.

The sofa’s not for me at any price,
Indeed it’s bloody hard,
And it’s not the same as being with my mates.

I don’t know why the wife makes so much fuss,
It’s mostly only once a week.
A soccer fan, a soccer fan.

But I know I’ll never give it up for her,
The thought of doing that is quite absurd.
I’m not a man to sit and watch TV,
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a soccer fan,
Soccer fan screaming from the terrace beer in hand.

But I know I’ll never give it up for her,
The thought of doing that is quite absurd.
I’m not a man to sit and watch TV,
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a soccer fan,
Soccer fan screaming from the terrace beer in hand

And I’m screaming from the terrace beer in hand...

Seeing as how "Mars aint the kind of place to raise your kids" is one of the great lines in rock history, you should try to nail it as.best you can ... So, here is my wholly unsolicited attempt ...... Bars aint the kind of place to take your wife .. It leaves her cold as hell .. But its the only place to watch it with my mates

That works perfectly for the US; maybe not for England as you tend call those places pubs
