I DON’T LIKE MATCHDAYS
By Ron Beaumont
The season ticket inside my hand is for the Midland Road
But I don’t really want to go today, I think I’d rather stay at home
My wife doesn’t understand me and I may be getting old
But I can see no reason halfway through the season ,what reason is there to go, oh oh.
Tell me why, I don’t like matchdays, tell me why I don’t like matchdays
Tel me why I don’t like matchdays I want to boot the whole day down.
The keeper’s sheet isn’t kept so clean with the soft goals we give away
And the midfield’s blocked, confidence is rocked. But at least we’ve brought back Doyle to the squad
If he could score sixteen for his Bradford team like he scored for the Swindon side
But he gets no passes I can’t see the passes and he’s drifting back and wide.
Tell me why I don’t like matchdays ,tell me why I don’t like matchdays
Tell me why I don’t like matchdays, I want to boot the whole day down.
And when the playings stopped and the points are dropped we can all go home for a while
Some left early ‘cos they saw too clearly that the lesson today had not been learnt.
Players play with shackles and can’t make tackles And Gary’s problems grow in size
But he can see no reason, been the same all season and the league table does not lie.
Still the season ticket inside my hand gets me into Midland Road
And I keep on going though not really knowing why I’m not staying at home.
Nobody understands me and I really feel the cold
But I’ll be there all season though it defies all reason
And there’s next season’s tickets to be sold.
Tell me why I don’t like matchdays, tell me why I don’t like matchdays
Tell me why I don’t like matchdays , I want to boot the whole day down
