Famous Faces In The Crowd

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Just like us celebrities love their football
Birmingham City is the team for Jasper Carrott

Another Man United fan is actor James Nesbitt
Jimmy Tarbuck proudly wears the Liverpool red
While Nigel Kennedy plays violin in his Villla kit.

Felllow comic Frank Skinner is a West Brom fan
It’s Newcastle’s black and white for geordie Jimmy Nail
Sunderlands red and white for Athletics Steve Cram.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Jeremy Paxman likes to watch Leeds United
When he’s not interrogating politicians on T.V.
And you’ll find Sir Steve Redgrave at Stamford Bridge
Because he’s an aficionado of Chelsea F.C.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Elton John is a well known lover of Watford
But other Rock Stars like their Soccer too
Chris Rea and Middlesbrough, Robbie Williams and Port Vale,
And Rod Stewart decked out in Scotland’s Blue.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But I don’t think anyone famous supports my club
And to be honest I don’t really care
Because you could be like Newcastle United
And end up with a part-time fan, like Tony Blair !

I say we haven’t got anyone famous supporting my team, but Eddie Jordan, from the Motor Racing Scene, says he’s a Cov City fan, but I would rather have someone following my club on a regular basis, not once in a blue moon, hence my swipe at Mr Blair !
