The Lyrics

Touch wood, I hope I don't have to sing this. But when a team reaches 3-peat or 4-peat, it tends to go through changes. But at university, when it is "sudden death football" every game within 5 minutes, all the clean sheets for me means nothing if I can't stay longer and win by scoring by my teammates. So I combined both frustrating situations, and just ranted it all out. Nil-all draws are no good at university, and it certainly would never helped in the league situation.
What about pay rise?
What about pain?
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain?

What about blowout wins
Is there a time?
What about all the draws
That you know: Not yours, they're mine?

Did you ever stop to notice
All the shots I've saved before?
Did you ever stop to notice
All the shots you didn't score?

WHY...
WHO...
WHY...
WHO...

What have you done to the club?
Look what you've done!
Why must I bail you out
When you shanked that easy one?

What about shutout streak?
Now's not the time
Why is it all the dreams
That's fulfilled's been all of mine?

Did you ever stop to notice
I have stopped another loss?
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying fans? The damn goal-drought?

WHY...
WHO...
WHY...
WHO...

I used to dream
I wanted thirty saves per start
Now I want you to score fast
Although I knew: This draw-streak's a farce

WHY...
WHO...
WHY...
WHO...

WHY...
WHO...
WHY...
WHO...

HEY:

What about your efforts here?
(What about us?)
What 'bout self belief
(What about us?)
My stamina's falling down
(What about us?)
I can't even breathe
(What about us?)

What about that great chance
(What about us?)
I have given you?
(What about us?)
What about breakout goal?
Ain't that what you want?
(What about us?)

What about our legacy?
(What about it?)
From four-peat to bust!
(What about us?)
What about that striker force
(What about us?)
I could lawfully trust?
(What about us?)

What about lying ref's?
(What about us?)
Have I been deceived?
(What about us?)
What about Sammy Dale [a great defender]
Cut despite my plead?
(What about us?)

What about my back-line D?
(What about it)
Torn up and got weak!
(What about us?)
What about their long-range shots?
(What about us?)
Can't we stop that spree?

What about shots conceded?
(What about us?)
Can't you hear my cry?
(What about us?)
Where did we go wrong?
Someone tell me why!
(What about us?)

What about that league trophy?
(What about it?)
What about those days?
(What about us?)
What about all those joy?
(What about us?)
What about the fans!
(What about us?)

What about the crying fans?
(What about us?)
What 'bout what Samuels said?
(What about us?)
Our team is dead again!
Do you give a damn?

WHY...
WHO...
WHY...
WHO...

Your soccer season hasn't started. Why have you written it off so soon?

And how did you come up with the rants at the end? Genius!
Rocky Mak - October 20, 2008 - Report this comment
As I said before, any team on a championship streak are dangerous to losing the record, epspecially as players get older, or lose the sense of challenge... so I'was covering myself. As for how I managed the rants? The first 2 parts are obvious. But the rest are mostly mis-hearing words from the original song.
