FAI Cup Draw

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Finn Harps again down in Tolka,
A team coming into their prime.
We still can’t forget
The last time we met,
But we might just get past them this time.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Thank God we didn’t get Longford,
Thank God we didn’t get Bohs.
Imagine the talk
Had we come out with Cork,
So it could have been worse, I suppose.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 On the other hand, why not some minnows
Who won’t put up much of a fight?
We’d put eight on the board,
For they’d be overawed,
And bemoan their impossible plight.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But whoever we’d drawn, we’d be cheering
And shouting until we were hoarse,
And with confidence high,
We’d expect to get by,
Unless we’d got Sligo, of course.
