Hoof it Far

For Roy Hodgson (to Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah)

I heard there was a system taught
the ‘pool played and it pleased the lords
but you don’t really care for football, do you
well it’s gone like this not first, or fifth
no FA cup, no Carling lift
the baffled king screams hoof it far

hoof it far…

well your faith is strong but we needed proof
not press comments afar, aloof
no beauty played, another game overtook you
They should tie you to the boardroom chair
break your throne and meet your stare
but from your lips you’ll scream hoof it far

hoof it far…

Hodgson we’ve been here before
We’ve seen this gloom and pushed the door
Souness lived alone before we knew you
we’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
but hope is not a victory march
it’s so old and it is broken – hoof it far

hoof it far…

well there was a time when we just knew
what’s really going on below
but now you never show that to us, do you
but remember when we moved so true
passed back, sideways and forward too
and every pass we played drew hallelujah

well, maybe there’s a god above
but all you’ve ever learned from love
was how to praise somebody who outplayed you
it’s not a cheer you hear at night
You’re not someone who’ll see the light
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah
