Not a priority

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The board explained their calculations:
“Cup runs lead to relegations.
“Down Wembley Way, we fear to tread,
“Far safer to be 12th instead.”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So accept defeat, don’t make a fuss,
Hit reverse on the open top bus.
Forget those 45 years of hurt,
And fork out for your Wronga shirt.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Yet Milburn, Mitchell, Robledo and Crowe
Are etched in folklore, rightly so.
‘cept nowadays, ‘stabilitys’ a feat,
Though try putting ribbons on a balance sheet.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There’s a lack of class and a lack of soul.
Staying up is the only goal.
Still, profits rise as our hopes fall.
They take our cash and mock us all.
