1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sir Alex is a splendid chap who earns a lot of dosh.
He likes good beer, fine vintage wine and solid, wholesome nosh.
Just send an invitation out, and you will surely find,
He’ll come and have a meal chez toi whenever you’re inclined.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A nice, hot home-baked Shepherd’s Pie he’ll be most glad to scoff.
A Vindaloo or Irish Stew he’ll briskly polish off.
Paella? He’s your fella! Lasagna? Al’s your man!
A Quiche Lorraine he’ll put away, away like no-one can.

He’ll wolf a Wiener Schnitzel down, or Macaroni Cheese.
Or Toad in Hole, a Dover Sole or even Mash ‘n’ Bangers,
(As long as you are careful not to mention Arsène Wenger).

When you draw up your menu.

Whate’er you choose, I’m warning you,
Don’t offer him a pizza!
