When I die…

Linesmen to the left of me

Linesmen to my right

Everybody watching

4th and down

Did I make the 1st or not?

I’m a football player

Tried and true

Get out of my way

Give me my due.

I’ve been bred

For this game

Lived and breathed it

All life long

Some chase the Game

Until the Pros

I played High School

Now I’m tthru.

My son will play

He’ll be bred into the game

And I’ll sit in the Stands

While I watch him

Until he’s thru.

The game won’t ever die

It’s been here too long

But I’ll sit in a lounge chair

Humming a football tune

And when you die

In Heaven

They’ll play football too.
