VERSE 1

 

* * **

U-to-pian,

 

** * ***u

Perfect state of being.(u)

 

* * **

Eu-ro-pean.

 

*** ** * *u

Has footy fans a-gree-ing.(u)

 

* * ** * * *

World Cup battles are O. K.

 

** ** * ** *

Ask thE average guy and he'll say:

 

* * **

He'd much rather,

 

* * * * *

See the best at play,

 

* * **

Week in, week out.

 

*** * * * *

So now's the time to break out.

 

Here I am in a golf shirt which promotes my local American soccer club, Louisville City FC, which has won the USL championship over the last 2 years, 2017 and 2018.

 

CHORUS

 

*.** * * *

Now that cer-tain Roy-als,

 

* ** * * *

Ain't really that loy-al.

 

** ** * * *

Take the oppor-tu-ni-ty.

 

* * ** * *

To cut loose of fam-ily,

 

* *** * *

Free your mind and fin-ally.

 

** ** * * *

Step up to the gra-vy train.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

* ** *

Men's Super League.

 

** *.* * *

Every match a der-by.

 

* * **

So much intrique(u)

 

* * *.* * * *

So come on join the par-ty.

 

* ** * * *

Great players should face off,

 

** * * * * *

Each time they tie their lac-es.

 

* *.* *

'Cept F.A Cup,

 

* * * * * * *

That's where A small club fa-ces,

 

* *.* * ** * * *.*.*

The sides from towns that are stacked with ump.teen clubs.

 

* * ** *

I feel for them cause,

 

*** ** * *

They deal with "Messi" pay stubs.

 

 

CHORUS

 

*.** * * *

Now that cer-tain Roy-als,

 

* ** * * *

Ain't really that loy-al.

 

** ** * * *

Take the oppor-tu-ni-ty.

 

* * ** * *

To cut loose of fam-ily,

 

* *** * *

Free your mind and fin-ally.

 

** ** * * *

Step up to the gra-vy train.

 

 

VERSE 3 - Optional (accent points align with VERSE 1)

 

* * **

Did banks coldly,

 

** * ***u

Tell their weal-thy clients?(u)

 

* * **

Short sell only,

 

*** ** * *u

The clubs that are not gi-ants,

 

* * ** * * *

There's more promise to gain ground,

 

** ** * ** *

Betting against teams further down,

 

* * **

On the standings.

 

* * * * *

Should fans not "play ball",

 

* * **

There'd be regret,

 

*** * * * *

"I'm sorry!" is all they'll get.

 

 

CHORUS

 

*.** * * *

Now that cer-tain Roy-als,

 

* ** * * *

Ain't really that loy-al.

 

** ** * * *

Take the oppor-tu-ni-ty.

 

* * ** * *

To cut loose of fam-ily,

 

* *** * *

Free your mind and fin-ally.

 

** ** * * *

Step up to the gra-vy train.

 

 

VERSE 4 (aligns with verse 2)

 

* ** *

Out on the hunt.

 

** *.* * *

Looking for a new team.

 

* * **

Let's be upfront.

 

* * *.* * * *

I'm not as pissed as I seem.

 

* ** * * *

Turf is a lot green-er.

 

** * * * * *

Over on the next fix-ture.

 

* *.* *

So it could be,

 

* * * * * * *

I stoked this foul de-mea-nor.

 

* *.* * ** * * *.*.*

I've got my pick of the U-nit-ed King-dom.

 

* * ** *

My muse helped me choose,

 

*** ** * *

A club in Shire: Lin-coln.

 

 

CHORUS

 

*.** * * *

If you want my bo-dy,

Now that cer-tain Roy-als,

 

* ** * * *

And you think I'm sex-y,

Ain't really that loy-al.

 

** ** * * *

Come on sugar tell me so.

Take the oppor-tu-ni-ty.

 

* * ** * *

If you really need me,

To cut loose of fam-ily,

 

* *** * *

Just reach out and touch me.

Free your mind and fin-ally.

 

** ** * * *

Come on, honey, tell me so.

Step up to the gra-vy train.

 

 

The End
