with a flat back ten and the team
bus parked on the pen spot.

a smaller crowd off the field
than is on.
He dug up the pitch
and put up a parking lot.

and put them in a skills museum,
and he charged all the people
an arm and a leg not to see ’em.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Don’t he always seem to go
on and on and on and on…
He raved at Allardyce
for having his own parking lot.

put away that 4-3-3 now.
He’s got a Terrycotta army
from the medieval dynasties.

first you go one up
then it’s gone—
Arda Turan
dug up his parking lot.

I heard a dream door slam,
and a big yellow taxi
took him to Inter Milan.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Don’t it always seem to go
that everyone cheers up
when he’s gone.

and put up a parking lot.
