After Delia… there was Lofty…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When Bolton played Norwich, the Bolton mascot caused confusion among the Norwich players and was asked to change his strip at half time. It’s excellent being a Norwich fan! This goes more or less to the tune of Crying – Don McLean

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It was all right
For a while
Red faces cooled
Headlines filed
But we played Bolton last night
To their fans delight
Our defenders, to a fellow
Said they couldn’t tell
Bolton players from, well…
Lofty the Lion
in blue
Lofty the Lion
Seven feet two
He was standing alone
Our defence, they did moan
Alone and lion
Lion… Lion
Norwich were beaten
Without tryin’

Notes

Surely we must be worth three points just for our comedy value. The boring old Prem’s gonna miss us when we’re gone…
