Not so Grim Grimsby!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Caught in the The Mariners’ whirlpool
The Premiership big fish struggled
And gasped for air and explanations
As Kalala’s exquisite volley
Thundered past Jol’s patience
And the Spurs defence
To nestle in the net…
Blundell Park a maelstrom of joy
Harry the Haddock having a laugh?
Not half!



Carling Cup Second Round Tuesday September 20, 2005
FT Grimsby 1-0 Tottenham.

Well in Mariners!

Fish Glorious Fish!
The Grimsby Fish Song

“Bring me salmon in your smile.
Bring me haddock all the while.
In this world where we live
There should be more halibut.
So much joy you can give
To each dolphin friendly tuna.

Bring me mackerel, through the dace.
Never bring me any plaice.
May your shark be as warm
As the squid from up above.
Bring me sardines, bring me pilchards
Bring me COD!”
