The Lyrics

For any guy who's had a fight with his girl while trying to watch the game
Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
S'always the same, "It's just a game!" Football!
I could say day, I could say night
No matter the time, it'll cause a big fight
Can't watch the game, it's just a shame, Football!

I could leave but I won't go
Only got 5 more yards to go
I can't leave it now with my team gettin' oh so close
So why does it always seem to be
Me fightin' with you, you fightin' with me
You always complain, I'm watchin the game! Football!

Turning it on, turning it off
Making me feel like I watch too much
Sittin' with you's just puttin' me through it all of the time
I missed a down 'cause you're blocking my sight
Now ain't the time to go start a big fight
Sittin' with you's just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't see a thing, please move, you're blocking the show
But why does it always seem to be
Me fightin' with you, you fightin' with me
I can't see the game, it's just a shame, football

Yes, dear- I love you
I know I've got work to do
I've got lots of chores on this weekend
But before I do
My team is fourth down and 2
Let me watch this next play til the end

(instrumental)

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can see my team with a TOUCHDOWN! Way to go!
Now things are the way they used to be
Me fightin' with you, you fightin' with me
Now don't be a pain, we're winnin' the game! Football!

Yes, dear- I love you
I know I've got work to do
I've got lots of chores on this weekend
But before I do
My team is fourth down and 2
Let me watch this next play til the end

Just as I thought it was going alright
Somebody went left when they shoulda went right
We lost the game, it's just a shame, football
Then I hear you say, "Well it serves you right"
Then you leave the room, think I'm done for the night
But I won't complain, here comes the next game, Football!

Football!
