Cos we’re in Serie B.
But I say the Ferraris
Is the only place to be.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’re playing Cittadella,
No pushovers are they.
So get down to Marassi
At 3pm today.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’ve Strootman, Frendrup, Coda,
They’re surely worth a watch.
Yes, come to the Ferraris,
To see a decent match.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And keep your Lio Messi,
Mbappé or Harry Kane,
For from the Gradinata Nord
You’ll see a cracking game.”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The final score was Nil-One,
But that don’t mean a thing.
The match was a humdinger,
Packed with pizzazz and zing.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 No lack of goalmouth incident,
A few we could have scored.
Of two and twenty thousand fans,
Not one of us was bored.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 They say we’re Ugly Sisters,
Cos we’re in Serie B.
But to my mind Marassi
Is the place I wanna be.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So come and join us down there,
It’s really not too far.
I’d rather watch the football there
Than any in Qatar.
