Billy Bragg - God's Footballer Lyrics

  • Gods footballer hears the voices of angels
  • Above the choir at molineux
  • Gods footballer stands on the doorstep
  • And brings the good news of the kingdom to come
  • While the crowd sings rock of ages
  • The goals bring weekly wages
  • Yet the glory of the sports pages
  • Is but the worship of false idols and tempts him not
  • Gods footballer turns on a sixpence
  • And brings the great crowd to their feet in praise of him
  • Gods footballer quotes from the gospels
  • While knocking on doors in black country back streets
  • He scores goals on a saturday
  • And saves souls on a sunday
  • For the lord says these are the last days
  • Prepare thyself for the judgement yet to come
  • His career will be over soon
  • And the rituals of a saturday afternoon
  • Bid him a reluctant farewell
  • For he knows beyond the sport lies the spiritual

  • Report error in lyric
