Em
strange as it may seem
  D    C/G
I once had my football dreams
                      G+6
but I was always the last one
                   G
the last to get chosen
          D
when my classmates picked their teams

         Em
I guess that was the way it stayed
D    C/G
  in every game I played
                  G+6
life just kicked me
                    G
and clattered and tripped me
         D
til you picked from the parade


       Bm
now I feel like I've won the cup
       Em
every time that we make love
       C/G
forty five minutes each way
        D                        Bm
at halftime I hear a brassband play


[chorus]
    C/G
the boy done good
     D
the girl done better
Em          D  C/G
seasons turn,  we're still together
 C/G
the sky's still blue
D                    Em        D
tomorrow 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

though I tried hard acting tough
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

still I'm happier where 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


[chorus] x 2
