The Lyrics

I'm NOT actually a Cov fan, but I am a football fan living in Cov. I had to get myself into the mindset of a Cov fan (& then back out again, very quickly - I didn't like it!). How can Bon Jovi have played the Ricoh Arena more than the football team in recent years?
Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home (oh won't you please take me home)

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home (oh won't you please take me home)

Just a lurching' playin' place to place, but on the
ball park we're tough to beat
Not a charity case, the owners' makin' it bleak
We're playin' in another town
When we should be playin' at home

Wembley trophies next to our name, & we'll
keep pushin' for the fortune and fame
You know it's, it's only football, yeah it's just a game
It's not a matter of life & death
Sometimes it means a little bit less

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Oh won't you please take me home, yeah, yeah

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home

Trapped in a chair another city home from home
Why I'm here I can't quite remember
Corona virus made it hazardous to breathe
Let's All Sing Together, Sky Blue Army, sing
Ta for digs, but we gotta leave

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home, yeah, yeah

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Oh won't you please take me home, yeah

So far away
So far away
So far away
So far away

Captains & managers have poured their hearts, like
players & fans, you can't tell apart, we say
"turn us around & take us back to the heart,
before we all lose our mind - are you blind?"
We said about a million times

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home, yeah, yeah

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Oh won't you please take me home

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home, yeah, yeah

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Oh won't you please take me home, home

I wanna go, I wanna go
I want our City at home
I wanna see how good it can be
I want our City at home

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Take me home

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Oh won't you please take me home

Take me home, take me home
I want our City at home
I wanna see how good it can be
I want our City at home

I wanna see how good we can be
When, we play at home

Take me down to the Coventry City
Where the grass is green & the Sky Blue's pretty
Oh won't you please take me home

I wanna go, I wanna see
Coventry City play at home

Well, the video for the original song was filmed in a football stadium. Giants Stadium. And the Giants do wear blue, although not sky blue. The only NFL team that wears that is the Carolina Panthers, and even then they alternate with navy blue.
