Sports Report


‘Out of the Blue’ is the name of the tune

They play it every week

At five o’clock on Saturdays

When football scores you seek


Originally written for an air display

A tune to raise your hopes

Did we win or did we lose

Are we on the ropes?


I sat in the coach at Burnley

Waiting to start for home

Always beaten at Turf Moor

Felt a bit forlorn


Fourteen I was on the cusp of life

Wanderers my team

Always wanting them to win

Following a dream


Driver starts the engine

Turns the radio loud

And that faithful tune trills in the air

Whole country a listening crowd


First got played in ‘48

Still now going strong

As old as me and still it says

Come on and join the throng
