Disney on Tyneside

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On a bleak, crisp, morose day up North
The zebra striped faithful march on, back and forth
Though desolate and morbid is the weather
Harry’s passed, Houllier’s favourite, yeah, right whatever!
A chink of light pierces the gloomy chaparral
As the Toon herald the return of the prodigal
And king Kev the artiste rides in on his trusty steed
Unfinished business, from henceforth we proceed
Happy days are here again as St James becomes a Shrine
Yes, fog on the Tyne is all mine, all mine
And as the bellow gathers force from Northshields to Gateshead
Peter Pan’s return is one not many will dread
You see all the so called big names were stabs in the dark
Now Magpie fortunes are a raging inferno’s spark
But still many are stunned with the return of King Kev
The faithful rear their motors – full pedal to the rev
The most emotional man in football will guarantee
Champagne football as all rub hands in glee
Or Kamikaze as Scunthorpe’s greatest throws another hissy fit
Either way, “I would just love it, I would just love it!, I would just love it!’

Notes

The Toon’s greatest manager ever returns – Welcome back to kamikaze defending and fantasy football – It’s what the fans demand don’t they?

Will Kev adapt the play or will it be no defence – but golden, flowing attacks.

Get ready for the greatest reception ever afforded to someone, since the death of Wor Jackie Milburn.
