A NEW ARSENAL ERA

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why don’t we stop, if for no other reason
To see if they’re the same Arsenal we saw last season

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I feel the birth of the new Arsenal can begin
Last night we went to Spain and saw our team finally win

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We defended so-so but oh, did we attack
Three away goals – got the Spanish donkey off our back

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Will I curse my team, is it a sin
That all I want is a home leg one-nil win

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I know there is still a way to go but the end is also near
I won’t hold my breath but we’re also 7 Premiership points clear

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 This far along and we haven’t lost a league game yet
For a gambling man you could probably wager a decent bet

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Where’re at what, the quarter finals of the FA Cup now
They couldn’t beat Pompey but we’ll show Liverpool how

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 But the greatest Gooner day
Was when they announced that there’d be a new place to play

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Imagine that, surrounding the pitch with 20,000 more Gooners
Although this anticipated announcement was a bit later, rather than sooner

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Arsenal Stadium will be sorely missed when it finally comes down
Ending an era of great Arsenal football in Highbury town

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 But my big worry, perhaps my biggest concern will be
Trying to find words to rhyme with Ashburton Grove

Notes

A good week for Arsenal with the weekend result vs. Chelsea, the new stadium being approved and winning in the Champions league IN Spain!
