I Have Faith in Ollie

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Opponents seize
On our unease,
And marvel at our folly,
But I’m quite calm,
There’s no alarm,
For I have faith in Ollie.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Some says he’s an
Unstable man
And clearly off his trolley,
But he’s quite sane,
I’ll say again
That I have faith in Ollie.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The guillotine
Is often seen
When clubs are strapped for lolly.
But it’s the taxman,
Not the axe-man,
I have faith in Ollie.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 No need to get
In such a sweat,
No need for melancholy,
Tax will be paid
By Accolade,
For I have faith in Ollie.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Financial rains
May flood the plains,
But we’ve a sturdy brolly.
He’ll keep this club
Away from troub-
-Le, I have faith in Ollie.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s nothing like
A Jayo strike,
A crisp, unerring volley –
There’ll be much more
Of those in store,
For I have faith in Ollie.

Notes

Shelbourne CEO Ollie Byrne, a man who has done so much for Shels and is universally loathed by fans of other clubs, denies that the Revenue Commissioners petition to wind up the Club is in any way serious.
