You can blame it on the politics,
Of Platini and his crew
You can blame it on the referee
Or the tepid half time brew.
Of course we had a penalty shout
Maybe two or three
We’re gutted cos we’ve been knock out
As any team would be.
But that Barca side? Were something else
I must just mention that
Down to ten, one nil behind, away to Chelsea
They continued to attack.
“A professional Italian referee
Would have done a better job”
No he wouldn’t, they had one at The Emirates
Who sent an innocent off.
Excuses, excuses, excuses
Guus Hiddinck called it right
We’d our chance to score and blue (sic) it
So you can blame whoever you like.
Passing the buck, is nowt but a sham
So nobody shoulders the blame
If only we kept the ball like The Catalans
We might have…. there’s another excuse that’s lame.
I ain’t had a chance to digest it yet
After watching Drogba’s embarrasing debacle
But congratulations to Barca and Pep
On reaching the Champion League Final!
