Eleven men in red and eleven men in blue –
One man’s in black ‘cos he tell ‘em what to do.
Then the whistle goes peep
And the sweeper starts to sweep –
Number ten begins to dribble
As the ball goes down the middle –
But the tackle’s rather hard
So the ref pulls out a card….
(chant) Send ‘im off, send ‘im off, send ‘im off…
Send ‘im off, send ‘im off, send ‘im off…

Eleven men in blue, but only ten in red,
Down comes a punt so he takes it on the head,
Then the people all shout
As the ball is moved about –
Now the striker thinks of shooting
But the keeper puts the boot in,
And the crowd calls out for more
But a player’s on the floor….
(chant) what a dive, what a dive, what a dive…
what a dive, what a dive, what a dive…
Now here we go, here we go,
Come on and give it! Football! Give it! Football!
Oh what a game, what a game,
Come on and live it! Football! Live it! Football!
21 men in shorts.
Eleven men in blue but the reds are down to nine
This is their chance – now the match is on the line.
Then a back pulls up his socks
He’s heading for the box,
And he’s got past a defender
Hoping for a happy-ender
‘cos the goal is open wide,
But the linesman says ’offside’…
(chant) use your eyes, use your eyes, use your eyes…
use your eyes, use your eyes, use your eyes…
