Rough an ready (strong language and subject)



Bobbing and weaving
punches and kicks fly in

i duck and dive
alive to the danger of it all
i'm in where the actions thick
quick.. Move....too late..a kick to the balls makes me feel sick
before i'm felled my attackers quelled...the proverbial seven bells ring for him

fists and feet
boys toys
for the saturday foray
"the so called english disease"
we'll have a dose ....yes please

the laws here now
were off on our toes
after the game we'll see how it goes

the chant goes up
all the lads singing

"heart of my heart
bring back those memories
when we were kids on the corner of shoreham street
we were rough and ready guys but oh how we could harmonise
