Altre di B - Subbuteo

An agonistic ditty

Sometimes Subbuteo can be an escape from things. Some may argue this is unhealthy; some may argue this is necessary; some may argue this needs to be acknowledged; some may not care at all - although those folks probably aren't on this web-page!

Altre di B are an indie rock band who started in the "flourishing underground scene of their hometown Bologna, Italy, carrying around a lively and vigorous sound combined with interactive, multi-instrumental and choral live performances, by claiming the inventiveness and the energy of indie rock and post-punk bands as main sources of inspiration."

Lyrics

I brought my boxes to the basement,
It was a Friday night.
Oh, it's such a shame.

Then I placed my teammates on the green field
For just one last time.
It wasn't the same.
It was not the same.

Life as a couple could be rough
With board games and without compromise.
So I spent all night down in the basement
When you were shouting upstairs.

"Oh, that's what you need,
A really good job offer".

I tried to cheat you with a forced smile
Pretending we were fine
But I thought you were wrong.
So I placed my teammates on the green field.

Eleven plastic men,
I flicked 'em all night.
Let me paint all the shirts
Of my Subbuteo team.
It's not insane.

So I spent all night down in the basement
When you were shouting upstairs.
"Right, that's what I need
A really good job offer".

"…that's what I need
A really good job offer"….
It's not the same…it's such a shame…
