your time has come
You’ve too much class
for the First Division
Back to the Premiership
the Baggies envision
Promotion candidates –
all right for some

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There is just too much class
in a Jason Koumas pass
to be flying on anything
but Premiership grass

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And that striker Hulse
has his boot on the pulse

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Defender supreme Bernt Haas
tackles hard
while collecting yellow cards
showing strikers who’s boss

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Strike hard the Albion
take the ball by the horns
and bring top flight football
back to The Hawthorns

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Grasp the notion
there is poetry in promotion


Having looked at the First Division table, I saw that WBA is in 2nd place, an automatic promotion place. I enjoyed watching them playing with the big boys last season and hope that they return for next season.
