GEOGRAPHICAL FOOTBALL

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’ll start in Great Ian Britton,
it will only take a while,
Alan Sunderland, Jon Sheffield,
and ex- Palace Wayne Carlisle
Joe Bolton of Sunderland
John Aston of Man U,
Geoff Barnet for Arsenal,
cup final — seventy two.
Jamie Clapham, Alan Devonshire,
Alex Stepney, Kevin Poole,
doing all this geography
is like being back in school.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Chris Sutton,Neville Southall,
and Lutons Alan Slough,
we’ve travelled all Mike England,
it’s time to leave it now.
We’ll make just a quick trip
to the city of Dwight Yorke,
and then we’ll head across the sea,
to the County Alan Cork.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Joe Mayo, Dion Dublin
and Palace player Shaun Derry,
and Chelsea striker Dixon,
whose first name it is Kerry.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Rob Douglas on the Isle of Man,
then ex- Liverpool Sean Dundee,
Steve Livingstone, Justin Edinburgh
and the gracious Bob Paisley.
A quick visit to the Valleys,
and Gareth Barry Town,
and then we’re on the plane again,
Milan Mandaric bound.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then Joe Jordan in the Middle East,
Matt Holland by the dams,
Alan Brazil by the Amazon,
and Alan Durban of the Rams.
In Texas,Stewart Houston,
a problem we have got,
Bryan Hamilton in Ontario,
who else have I forgot?
Oh yeah — Asa Hartford in Conneticut.
the last stop on the trip,
so I’ve done my writing for the night,
I’m off out for a sip.
