I’m Not Giving Up…. Just Yet!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So I can at least manage to function
Absolve my broken heart of hurt
I’m in a TKK Maxx here “Up The Junction”*
Seeking out a Ballotelli shirt.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’ve scanned the aisles in Lidl
They’ve sold every azure top
With Italia printed proudly in the middle
S’why I’m buzzing round the shops.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 O Paolo Rossi, Claudio Gentile
Dino Zoff, Marco Tardelli
Do have a word with Andrea Pirlo please
To really give that ball some welly.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Aldi didn’t have a single one
Nor did Sainsbury’s
Though they’d loads with England on ’em’
With Two for One (sic) printed underneath.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’ve ordered twenty pizza’s
From our Italian take-away
Though I won’t have time to eat ’em’
As I’m off to The Italian Church to pray*

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 O Paolo Rossi, Claudio Gentile
Dino Zoff, Marco Tardelli
Do have a word with Andrea Pirlo please
To really give that ball some welly.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Our lads are bang in trouble
You simply need to win the next two games
Or we’ll have really burst our bubble
and be heading for the plane.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Wow! Just had a message from a pal of mine
Who knows a bloke what knows a bloke
With a load of azure shirts, a discontinued line
Saying “Italians Do It Better” on. (Yeah we already know!)
Their Madge’s famous quote.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 O Paolo Rossi, Claudio Gentile
Dino Zoff, Marco Tardelli
Do have a word with Andrea Pirlo please
To really give that ball some welly.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Ballotelli’s just said this very minute
That should Italy win their next two games
He want’s a kiss from our majestic Liz
Which a bloke I know could well arrange.

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 So I’m sending David Cameron a little dosh
To see what he can do
With regards to making Liz a blinding offer
You know, of the kind she can’t refuse.

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 O Paolo Rossi, Claudio Gentile
Dino Zoff, Marco Tardelli
Do have a word with Andrea Pirlo please
To really give that ball some welly.

Notes

A little light-hearted something I’ve just written to help ease my pain from last nights game.

O I Do Hope We Win The World Cup.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.

Peace.

Kev.

*Going to Clapham Junction over in South London is often referred to as going “Up The Junction”, as in the wonderful Squeeze song of the same name.

*The Italian Church in Clerkenwell Road, Central London, is where a huge Italian community reside.
