Fairytale Of N1!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 T’was Christmas Eve babe in the North Bank
An oulde one said to me “I’ll be sad to go”
Then they sang a song about leaving Highbury
It’s the last season there, next year it’ll be Ashburton Grove

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’re on a losing run watched Chelsea score for fun
I’ve got a feeling the title will end up Blue
So Happy Christmas to all you Gooners
I can see a bitter time when Thierry Henry parts with you

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They’ve high hopes like the stars
They’ve got Thierry Henry
They’ve Pascal Cygan
They’ve got Gael Clichy
When Reyes first joined them
A twenty million dollar kid
He really had his sights fixed on Real Madrid

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They’ve Bergkamp, Van Persie
No funds at their mercy
Vieira has gone now to find pastures new
When January comes, they’ll be doing their sums
To offload Robert Pires, I would, wouldn’t you?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The boys of the North Bank Highbury
Wanna win the Champions League
And Thierry Henry looks like he might leave

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 You’re a Gooner, a red
And yer league chance is dead
The time for real change is upon you at last
Whilst Vieira was leaving
You kept on believing, you’d adequate replacements
But that was a laugh

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We were number one
Now Chelsea’s turn has come
They’ve turned us over three times this year
We look out of sorts
Ashley Cole’s been through the courts
Is he off to the Bernabeau?
It’s something we hear

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The boys of the North Bank Highbury
Wanna win the Champions League
And Thierry Henry looks like he might leave
