Gods Footballer - Lyrics by Bragg Billy

God's footballer hears the voices of angelsabove the choir at Molyneaux
God's footballer stands on the doorstepand brings the good news of the kingdom to come
While the crowd sing Rock of Ages
The goals bring weekly wages
Yet the glory of the sports pagesis but the worship of false idols and tempts him not
God's footballer turns on a sixpenceand brings the Great Crowd to their feet in praise of him
God's footballer quotes from the Gospelswhile knocking on doors in the Black Country back streets
He scores goals on a Saturday
And saves souls on a Sunday
For the Lord says these are the Last Days
Prepare thyself for the Judgement yet to come
His career will be over soon
And the rituals of a Saturday afternoon
Bid him a reluctant farewell
For he knows beyond the sport lies the spiritual
