By The Rivers of Babylon

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Eamonn started to babble on,
He wore that frown,
Yea we wept
When he dismembered Brian.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He said,
“Where was all the creativity
Required to break them down?
Now how shall we sing “The Fields”
In a strange land?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Oh, the moans of your mouth
And the lamentations of your heart
Aren’t acceptable in our sight
Here tonight.”

Notes

For those without RTE, Eamonn Dunphy, controversial TV panellist, was having a go at Brian Kerr after the match, which raised serious doubts about our ability to qualify for Germany 2006.
