Big Sam Allardyce’ Blue and White Army

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’re the Mersey Madmen,
We’re seriously insane,
‘Cos we support the Boys in Blue,
We’ve only half a brain.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Were we endowed with any sense,
We’d follow Liverpool,
But we’re consigned to Everton
By Destiny so cruel.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Tradition? No lack of it!
Ambition? Reams and reams!
Our name? To us no other name
Could ever sound as sweet!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The teams we do not like include
Lyon and Atalanta.
On their account these past few days
We’ve endured so much banter.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Nil Satis Nisi Optimum –
Right now this boast rings hollow.
But nonetheless the Toffeemen
We shall not cease to follow.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We’re glory-hungry Velites
From the sluggish Mersey’s marge,
And the only way for us is up
Now that Big Sam is in charge.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 4/12/17
Denys E. W. Jones
