Du Dun, Du Dun, Du Dun, Du Dun….

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like a favourite caff which one misses a lot
When yer spending a fortnight in Spain
Where their milk might be white, water seems hot
Yet the Rosie Lee don’t taste the same.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Paella for some may be all right?
When The Chippy has bolted its doors
But there’s nuffink to talk of on a Saturday night
If you ain’t heard that voice with the scores.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Whilst the musical fanfares are fading
The headlines are quickly read out
Five –o-clock of a Saturday, most fans are waiting
For that tone where there’s never a doubt.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Has anyone ever heard such perfect elocution?
Which tells you the scores clear as day
As millions indoors scanning their coupons
Are praying for homes or aways.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Can anyone pronounce Hamilton Academicals?
So it’s sound like it’s Paris or Rome
While Wolverhampton Wanderers, is a wonderful example?
Of how perfect Queens English is spoken?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Then that team which is mentioned in The Bible*
What a heavenly place that must be
Is quaintly read out like Plymouth Argyle
In a style which might tempt one go see.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 His inflection is rising as the pools points pile up
Has he thrown in his lot on eight draws?
Will he regain his composure to finish his spot?
Whilst he teases tense punters indoors?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Livingston, Raith Rovers, Dumbarton or Morton
Names that could mean… no more work
Are tersely read out be James Alexander Gordon
In a style that could cause hearts to jerk.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 So welcome back James, your voice has sorely been missed
During this close season past
Whilst Sports Report is still the show at the top of my playlist
Even though….. it starts off with news on The Arsenal! *



I really love this blokes voice, and often feel that maybe he’s had a bit on eight score draws, because by the time he gets to the Scottish Third division and just past it, his tone of voice really has changed quite dramatically. Wonderful music that starts off the programme as well.

*Queen Of The South are I’m told mentioned somewhere in The Bible.

*I know that A is the first letter in the alphabet, but us Londoners refer to them blimmin Gooners as The Arsenal.

Enjoy the new season, and whoever you support. May your team do it’s best to entertain you.


Go well and be lucky.
