The Match and the Patch

Football fans

from Northern towns

hit the capital city

Sharp-dressed, pretty


sure to take the opportunity

to take in a record shop

and rifle through vinyl

score a winner

reach the final


Make their way to Covent Garden

Soul City stocks lots

of what they’re after

Not the latest but the dateless

timeless, rhyme and fast off-beat

Northern Soul for golden feet


From The Left Wing

to the Twisted Wheel

The Torch, Casino

toe to heel

That’s what the weekends are for


Out on the pitch or out on the floor

The match, the dance hall, where else would you be?

It’s all about the footwork, see?
