Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Football Mob!

This song was created for Game of Bands round 189 : "Medieval II"

Lyrics:

Mob Football!
-------------
VERSE
Pig's bladder inflated / With crowds east and west
Unlimited players / Fight to determine the best
We set up a marker / on each side of town
Anything except murder / To win is allowed
kick the ball in the balcony / of the opposing church
some people felt glory / and others got hurt
Sweaty and dirty / all the men played
Could get yourself injured / but you're never afraid

CHORUS
Come and join us, in the football mob!
Whether tall and lanky, or a little squab
So fun and joyous, so leave your stupid job
Tearing up the town , we are the football mob!
You'll always find a buddy, in the football mob
We get all tough and muddy, perfect for a slob
Punch you in the face, an elbow in the gob
We're ripping up our city, and we are the football mob!

VERSE
We play in Ashborne, Derbyshire, and Shrovetide
When its time to play, we shove our work aside
Scoring our next goal is most important thing
And when we are victorious we yelp and dance and sing

I'm supposed to be an archer but I want to play football
Way across the town, so I cannot hear the call
The biggest game is played on Shrove and Ash Wednesday
King Edward's missing soldiers so he outlawed our game!

CHORUS
Come and join us, in the football mob!
Whether tall and lanky, or a little squab
So fun and joyous, so leave your stupid job
Tearing up the town , we are the football mob!
You'll always find a buddy, in the football mob
We get all tough and muddy, perfect for a slob
Punch you in the face, an elbow in the gob
We're ripping up our city, and we are the football mob!

Followup Note: Believe it or not they still play Mob Football every year in Shrovetide on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, throughout the whole town, no rules (except no weapons or motorized vehicles), since the middle ages.
