Olly, Olly, Olly

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Tao of Olly Mourinho
Proclaiming verbal gems with a cough
“Ball travelled at four hundred,”
“Burned the keeper’s eyebrows off”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Olly told the team to harness
The spirit of all-time greats
Matthews, Mortensen, Armfield, Ball
They with grand football traits

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Towering triumph at Blackpool
Far flung from the Foxes drop
Victor in the Ninety million game
For the right to play the Kop

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Cadbury Heath, Loftus Road to Seasiders
Twerton park and pigeon fancier Francis
Baldie Bristolian at Bloomfield Road
Sealing promotion with a kiss

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Five hundred Grand on Charlie
Orange troupe with a paltry wage bill
Less than John Terry’s annual pay
Squad income under five mil

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Decades to unite the Tangerines
For those who care to reminisce
Olly joins Mr Armfield
Magic from the sign linguist

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Pleasure beach gates welcome
Blackpool are in the promised resort
Fat lady with the mic hasn’t sung yet
yet still in Olly’s thought

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Number 7
