1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A fella runs along the platform
To catch a fast departing train
A lone brunette is wailing at the barrier
Will she see him again?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He jumps on to the running board
He’s made it just in time
He turns to wave at the crying girl
That he’s left behind

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He finds a vacant seat in a carriage
As the fella sits slowly down
He notices the looks he gets
From people gathered around!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Woman are holding hankies
Men are teary eyed
All have seen what’s gone on
With that poor girl left behind!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The fella starts to smile a bit
Slowly clears his throat
Stands up to show a West Ham shirt
As he takes off his coat!

What you saw back there
I wouldn’t leave my wife
Like that as if I didn’t care”

My wife means all to me
She sees me off to every away game
Waving her hankie”

That I wish she would stop
After all we’re only playing Ipswich
I’ll be back tonight by seven-o-clock!”

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 “She’s seen too many movies
She’s French so that explains
Why she’s so dramatic
And will not come to games”

West Ham, West Ham J’taime
But she just says, “Non tu West Ham
J’taime J’taime St Etienne!!!”
