Draw the Line At A Replay

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 FA Cup Fourth Round
Blackpool 1 : Norwich City 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Daggers were drawn
To fight for the prize
Draw the curtains
Avert your eyes
We were ready to draw blood
But it was a sketchy performance
– No pens
So we’re still in the hat
The only drawback
Is that we drew a blank

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now the Tangerines are travelling down
With sand and hope in their boots
To visit the fine City of Norwich
Where Sunday best is birthday suits

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So what are we known for round here?
Well, the shoe factories are all but gone
We make mustard and Lotus cars
And Turkey Twizzlers, though we’re not fond

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 May the best team win and all that jazz
If Blackpool win, it won’t be a shock
Delia will provide the rolls
As long as Blackpool remember the rock

Notes

I just hope it’s all over within ninety minutes; penalty shootouts are in Room 101 as far as Canary fans are concerned.
