A or B?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tell me, now tell me, what’s it to be,
Serie A or Serie B?
Will we stay up, or be flung headlong down?
Will we feel chuffed, or with despair groan?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Drop or Survival, Heaven or Hell?
Champagne corks poppin’, or passing-bell’s knell?
Will we taste Triumph, or savour Disaster?
Which will it be of those two impostors?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 One match to play, to win, lose or draw.
Hoping against hope, we clutch at thin straws.
Last Chance Saloon, last spin of the wheel,
Will it be woe, or will it be weal?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 What’s your prediction, what do you reckon?
Top-Flight place guaranteed? Second Tier beckons?
Jury’s still out, deliberating.
We’re here on tenterhooks, Verdict awaiting.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Stay execution, grant a reprieve,
Please, please don’t let it be Serie B!
