Kinder Magic

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 For years I’ve heard of FA Cup magic
As Norwich City dreams gathered dust
Our Cup runs remained almost static
Ancient trophies turned to rust

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The fabled trip to Wembley – I’ve never been
The strong Cup presence – I’ve never seen
The FA Cup mainly dresses in red or blue
It’s never worn our yellow and green

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 FA Cup memories for me are lean
I can’t tell you what it would mean
The recent silverware at Carrow Road
Consists of Delias fictional soup tureen

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Now gather round the TV
Our ball in ‘the hat’; excitement and caffiene
For the first time since 1995
We’re in the last sixteen

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Numbers in a velvet bag
Waiting to be drawn
Home or away, minnow or giant
Fifth round games are born

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Hurrah! We’ve got a home tie
I don’t know who to thank
But we’re playing Leicester City
And that Saturday won’t be blank

15

Notes

No blank Saturday for us then (unless the TV moguls step in). Should be a cracking tie, Leicester will fancy their chances and hopefully we’ll take ours.
