MARRIED TO A FOOTBALL CLUB
Am married to you
All my life am thinking of you
I've never got a reason to shun you down
My dreams are, always to be your supporter.
I need no more than trophies from you
But all you can do, is to make embarrassed
with each season being a trophieless season.
I see good future in you
as your game is sex
the name of the team is great
your players are fantastic
and the stadium is gorgeous
but no trophy is with us.
Our rivals we no longer scare them
and they no longer respect us
but come to lure our den.
My jersey hangs on the wall
for I fear being laughed at
and watching you play makes me feel like getting ulcers.
I love you more than others
that's why all my life I have dedicated to you
we are a great club
and we can show them we still alive.
Lets make it a dream come true
for I believe in you.
Tonight it will be a great night.
FOREVER LOVE YOU ARSENAL
