Blue and White Army

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’re an army blue and white,
Our hopes are high, our prospects bright.
On this, another Season’s eve,
Once more we truly do believe.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We represent our city,
Well, half of it at least.
There is another team, in red,
They’re not our cup of tea.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Our stadium’s name is Goodison,
A proper football ground –
Not Emirates or Etihad,
Or some such global brand.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Our keeper’s England’s Number One,
His derby clanger cost us dear –
Those hands no longer seem so safe,
A god once, now a mortal mere.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Nil Satis Nisi Optimum,
We mean it, it’s no joke,
Though sceptics scoff, sneer, say we’re nuts,
And ask us what we’ve smoked.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And so the glory-hunt goes on,
Though some may us deride.
Come on, you boys in blue and white,
Restore our dented pride!
