Blow the whistle

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Blow the whistle, was all he kept saying,
for the referee`s blood he was constantly baying,
with his head in his hands, he looked quite absurd,
but it was the funniest thing that i`d ever heard,
but to see a grown man that close to tears,
was slightly embarassing for the rest of his peers,
and at every home game in the schoolboys end,
‘blow the whistle’ a.k.a Ted,would often offend,
and over the years his mantra stayed the same,
pleading with the referee, to finish the game,
can`t say if he was psychotic, just `round the twist,
but ‘blow the whistle’,was a character i`m gonna miss,

Tribute to `Blow the whistle’ a.k.a. Ted. schoolboys end, Highbury stadium, between 1979 -1984
