Black and White together

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I once went to Newcastle
To go and watch them play
Against the Reds from Manchester
But I felt sickened on that day

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Early in the second half
Incey scored a goal
But the way it was received
Made me want to dig a hole

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘Ince you black bastard’
A bloke behind me roared
It was shouted with such venom
But when Newcastle scored

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The same bloke was upon his feet
‘Well done Andy, you’re black and white’
Cole headed home past Schmeichel
‘Watch Match of the Day tonight’

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I wondered if he realised
What he’d had to say
His contradictory rant and
The poison spat out that day

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So football people everywhere
The decent football fan
Stand up, say ‘no’ to racists
And slap them with a ban

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We don’t want them following England
We don’t want them in our grounds
So let’s make sure, for racists,
They’re firmly out of bounds!
