Ode to The one I Love

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 What would my life have been like,
If I’d never met you?
I’d have no one to rub my head
When I think I have the Man-Flu
I really can’t imagine,
I haven’t got a clue
But at least my Lilywhite Tottenham Hotspur Shirt
Wouldn’t be Blue.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Chorus
It’s Blue, It’s Blue, My Tottenham shirt is Blue
It shouldn’t be that colour but it is now thanks to you.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 That’s right when you washed it
Mistakenly with a Blue Sock.
And you pulled it out
And I got quite a shock.
And my Male Pride
Took quite a knock
I couldn’t talk for four days
And all you did was mock.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You didn’t feel bad
About this catastrophic mistake,
That it was my favourite Item of Clothing
No difference it did make.
You said it’s only a stupid shirt from a stupid team
Grow up for god’s sake.
This is the kind of abuse
I had to take.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So even today
When I gaze at the shirt
Imaging it white
I still get quite hurt
Still it’s not Arsenal red
That is some comfort
But be careful with my clothes from now on
Please be more alert.
