A Great Big Melting Pot!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 At playing fields near river
Call sacred Father Thames
With Stamford Bridge just up the road
As that glistening jewel softly bends
I caught this bug
Though as if drugged
And have been so since then

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Oh Anna Lee across the sea
In city known as Cork
I love you as a lover
Though its cockney that I talk

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You’re in my thoughts
On Thameside walks
And will ever so remain
I am a London Irish bloke
Torn between two rivers
Its a blue that I’m commited to
So Chelsea’s in my veins

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Not Fulham from the Cottage
Or Rangers from the Bush
Or anything from North London
We won’t talk about here…shush!!!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Irish follow Arsenal
The Jews support the Spurs
The East End follow West Ham
With ethnicity and verve

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 In London we’ve a mixture
A great big melting pot
Of different teams
Who create dreams
For fans from all this lot

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We have a friendly rivalry
At times through out the year
But there’s no place I’d rather be
Than London
That’s why I’m here!
