Austerity? Do me a favour
“FA Cup” on the wane? Do be brief
As 5000 visitors turn up to savour
The Arsenal do battle with Leeds.
A cold Monday night in North London
Nearly 60.000 fans line the streets
To witness return of the prodigal son
Va Va Voom Terry Henry.
Wireless suggested The Arsenal had laboured
To a United defence, of two banks
When the moment arrived, all that’s fish n chip paper
Come the hour, cometh the man.
Flashbacks to a wonderful era
The season without a game lost
Bergkamp, Adams, Dixon, Viera,
Highbury, North Bank, The Clock.
Gooner’s fans stood up ecstatic
Real woes of their world were forgot
In that moment they floated on air, it was magic
”FA Cup” waning? It’s not!
