Ice Age

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 11,500 BC A cold landscape swept by herds of reindeer and wild
horses

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 2005 AD A cold landscape swept by herds of stewards and wild
supporters tyring to get served at the bar

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Trophy wives
It’s the best our players can hope for
As success gives them the cold shoulder
A chill blast of reality
Shrivels our squad size once more
Thoughts of promotion frozen out
Temperatures plunge as debt soars
But still the first Saturday in August
Will send a shiver down my spine

Notes

The Norfolk Archaeological Unit discovered long flint blades at the Carrow Road site during excavations in 2003 prior to rebuilding the South Stand. The find is “potentially of national importance”.

It is rumoured that the next Ice Age will arrive at Carrow Road before the next trophy.
