Get some money out of petty cash,
Buy white emulsion and some scarlet ribbon,
You and I are going to make a splash.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ‘Start to paint the goalposts, Jim Fitzgibbon,
While I reach the crossbar with a stool.
Hand me up that vivid scarlet ribbon,
This is going to look extremely cool.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘We’ll make these goals stand out now, Jim Fitzgibbon,
So brilliant that they’ll glisten and they’ll glint.
We’ll decorate each one with scarlet ribbon,
And hope our bloody forwards take the hint.”
