You see it in the classroom, in the swimming pool, where the matchstick men are made

In the scouts hall, at the football, where the wise we trust are paid
                  G                         Am  
They all honur his name, he did alot for the game
Bm
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
              G                  Am                           Bm  
But now there ripping them down, stamping the ground, picture gathers dust
                     C 
behind the bar in the lounge

Away in the schoolyard, change room, playing fields bathroom
G           Am             Bm             C
Phonebox, office box, every corner turned around,
                       G                  Am
They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame, 
            Bm                    C
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates, 
        G                   Am

Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge

But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches,

It only takes one match, to burn a thousand treees.
