Feed the Yak!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He wears the Blue and White with pride,
He’s beautiful and black.
His real name is Yakubu,
But we fans call him the Yak.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’s often on the scoresheet,
He’s beefed up our attack.
Our prospects have looked brighter
Ever since we signed the Yak.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He scores with right, he nets with left,
Or nods in with his head.
But he won’t find the target
If he isn’t prop’ly fed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He’s got goal-sense, finesse, technique,
Such things he does not lack.
But if you want him to perform,
Then you must feed the Yak.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 He thrives on through-balls, crosses,
On passes and assists,
If you provide the service,
He’ll hardly ever miss.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 He struck on his home debut,
And never has looked back.
So if you want more strikes from him,
Just feed that hungry Yak!
