Down to Rio

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why?- oh why Rio?
Why did you go?
At Elland Road
You were the star of the show

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You’ve left to win trophies
That’s what you say
But it’s all about money,
At the end of the day

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You’ve chosen to go
To the “Theatre of Dreams”
An act of betrayal
to Leeds fans-it seems

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Fans would wish you well
If you’d not become a Red
Why not go abroad?-or choose
Arsenal instead?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But at the end of the day
It’s only football
So–all the best Rio
Hope you win sod all!

Notes

Possibly a Leeds fans reaction to Rio’s transfer
