Mick On The Mike!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like the punters that you share yer dreams with
When the whole blimmin lots going north
He sounds like the bloke who can laugh at a joke
He’s subtle, but been known to be coarse

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’s never obscene, he’s not keen on Keane
His commentary cant is just bliss
“If he had pulled him back in that last attack
He’s going off there’s no excuse for this”!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He appreciates skill has I’m sure had his fill
Of the management game’s pitfalls and traps
But through his honesty and determined integrity
He rises above all the crap

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Tis said when Albania played Éire in Dublin
The poorly paid away team were strapped for a meal
With no football fame gab big Mick picked up their tab
With a modesty that tells you he’s real

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When that crazy bloke should have been red carded
Dispatched swiftly to an early bath
He’s not afraid to say, while other stand on parade
Telling you “That referee’s just having a laugh”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Frank McAvennie tells a story of how Mick
Was hardly what you’d call discreet
After Frank had given him the run around a few times
Big Mick would just not admit defeat

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Frank’s on the floor holding his jaw
Bird noises seeing stars so to speak
As Mick picked him up he was told to shut up
And listen to Mick’s ode to the weak
” Frankie me son me football skills none
But I’m the hardest bloke you’ll ever meet”!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 He speaks like a fan, does all that he can
To invite you in to his football party
He’s the voice of the fan on the telly
He’s one of me fave’s Mick McCarthy
