Acquired by our forefathers jobs,
comes our second name,
so lets check out some footballers,
to see past claims to fame.
For the man who Phil Parkes, your Willie Carr,
you’ll never beat Paul Parker,
and the man who imitates your dog,
you’ve Wolves old Ritchie Barker.
Did Spurs’ Paul Miller work,
in the Yorkshire Danny Mills,
and did Mark Nurse of Swansea,
dish out medicine and pills.
Peter Taylor patched your pants up,
Joe Baker supplied your bread,
Terry Butcher chopped your pork up
and Phil Barber shaved your head.
Kingsley Black and Tommy Smith,
fixed your horses hooves,
and Stuart Slaters ancestors,
worked upon the roofs.
The Walsall Saddlers they made sure,
you had a comfy seat,
and Barry Silkman made the purses,
for the rich elite.
The Evertonian Toffee men,
made sweets that children like,
and the Crewe Alexander Railway Men,
taught the world how to go on strike.
Kevin Pressman pressed your trousers,
or did he write the news?
and the Northampton Cobblers,
looked after your shoes.
Was David Seaman in the navy
and work upon the ships?
and did Tony Waiters,take your order,
and work hard for his tips?
Gordon Marshall took care of crime ,
with the help of Denis Law,
and Paul Mariner, would catch the fish,
and sell them to you raw.
There was a Butler who served at Swindon,
I believe his first names Stuart,
they reckon in his hey day
he was another Dennis Tuert.
Chris Coleman delivered black stuff,
to keep you warm in winter,
and Palace star George Wood,
had to be careful of the splinter.
The Hatters of Luton,
most of them insane,
they never were informed,
they had mercury on the brain.
Some say of Nicky Weaver,
that he often dove too late,
but as a trade, the ancient weavers,
wove just bloody great.
So that’s the end of ‘Occupations’
and playing around with names,
the football seasons started
so no more little games.
