I Found Him To Be Rather Boring

He must have thought I have a hearing problem he kept talking loudly in my ear
I found him to be rather boring his talk quite uninteresting to hear
He had more than one drink too many like water he swallowed his beer
I thought to myself after this drink I am on my way out of here.

Nonetheless his life to him must seem interesting though he only could talk of football
The great games and names of great footballers are things he can readily recall
Talk of sports only hold my attention for ten minutes may be at most
To elite sports people and sporting achievements I am not the type to drink a toast

The din in the crowded bar was a loud din too noisy for one such as I
I finished my beer in a hurry and to him I said my goodbye
As I walked home through the Town Parkland the birds sang on bush and on tree
Compared to the din of the bar-room this place seemed so peaceful to me.

He must have thought I was short of hearing in my ear he was talking loud
He waffled on about the big final where he was part of the huge crowd
The big final played in September one might say I've heard it before
And I would be one happy person not to hear of sports ever-more
