SO THERE I WAS with the ball at my feet and the Wembley crowd watching me go.
Dodging the tackles as I sped towards goal when I heard the whistle blow.
And a million people were looking at me as if I had some strange disease.
And the ref said: "I'm booking you, my lad for having inadequate knees.
Flesh and bone instead of wood — don't you know it's against the law?
And the trainer ran on carrying two wooden legs and a giant circular saw,
Said: 'They'll have to come off, but it won't hurt, son,' and I started to silently scream.
And a message arrived from Jane Fonda, said 'I can't appear in your dream.'
And everything's lurching out of control, they're infiltrating my head.
When I woke up this morning, they were all around my bed.
IF I KNEW WHO THE ENEMY WAS I'D SHOOT THE BASTARD — DEAD.
