  Emstrange (022000@1)as it may seem
  D (xx0232@1)  C/GI (3x555x@1)once had my football dreams
but I was always the last one
                   Gthe (320003@1)last to get chosen
          Dwhen (xx0232@1)my classmates picked their teams

         EmI (022000@1)guess that was the way it stayed
D (xx0232@1)  C/G (3x555x@1) in every game I played
life just kicked me
                    Gand (320003@1)clattered and tripped me
         Dtil (xx0232@1)you picked from the parade

       Bmnow (x24432@1)I feel like I've won the cup
       Emevery (022000@1)time that we make love
       C/Gforty (3x555x@1)five minutes each way
        D (xx0232@1)                      Bmat (x24432@1)halftime I hear a brassband play

    C/Gthe (3x555x@1)boy done good
     Dthe (xx0232@1)girl done better
Em (022000@1)        D (xx0232@1)C/Gseasons (3x555x@1)turn,  we're still together
the sky's still blue
D (xx0232@1)                  Em (022000@1)      Dtomorrow (xx0232@1)is another day

You weren't that kind of a bird who
likes her studs to be covered in mud
Taking you to the pictures was a regular fixture
For one of life's eternal subs

I tried hard acting tough
but I just can't stand the taste of that stuff
Like some macho park player I got in the way of
In some grudge match against his pub

But I'm happier than I am today
now I've put my boots away
I guess I'll never get picked to play my
song on Match of the Day
