JOE, I WANT TO GOT TO THE FOOTBALL MATCH WITH YOU
 
div
 
Sweet, sweet Flo had a beau named Joe
Quite an ardent football follower
To the local match with quick despatch
Every Saturday he hied
Sweet, sweet Flo wasn't asked to go
And her heart was always sorrowful
She thought it a shame to miss each game
So sadly she cried.

Chorus: Joe, Joe, Joe, I want to go to the football match with you
Joe, Joe, Joe, I want to go to the football match I do
Joe, Joe, Joe, I want to go, and if you don't take me too
When you bring your little wedding ring, 'Twill be 'offside' with you


Off he'd go to a football match and Flo
Would remain at home in misery
For in fancy she the game could see
As across the ground they sped
That's why Flo dropped a hint to Joe
That she'd like to go on Saturday
And each Friday night to him she'd write
A postcard which read,

Chorus:

Flo and Joe to each match now go
And they shout 'Hooray' for Robinson
And when Jenkins shoots, then bet your boots
With the rest of them they roar
Thomson's play they could watch all day
And they rave of good old Harrison
But oh, you should hear the way they cheer
If Perkins should score.

Chorus:
