black and blue

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Black and blue

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Some called him king, some only wanted a win
Some racially abused him
Because of the colour of his skin,
Playing left on the wing
Some threw bananas at him
Every time he touch the ball there was monkey chanting

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His name was Paul Canoville
He was the first black in blue
A villain to many a hero to few
The first black player to wear Chelsea’s blue
Even when he scored his own fans would boo
No cut no scratches not even a bruise
But Paul Canoville will always be black and blue
