Poems in The Stadium

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 SMELL

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I walk into the stadium
I can smell the lovely hotdogs
And the gooey mud
I can smell hot tea and
Then I can see Emmanuel Pettit

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 SEE

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I can see the wicked players
And the shouting Harry Rednapp
Running across the grass layers
When there is a good shot, the fans clap

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 SOUNDS

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I can hear whistles blowing
And tans glowing
People saying “ Come on West Ham!” and “Come on Ref!!”
Harry saying “Get back boys your doing well”
Di Canio saying “Pass the ball”
