He came on the radio
after his team got beat,
he was in pieces and angry
at his beloved club’s defeat.
He said he’d been a fan for years
followed them all over the place,
but his voice started to crack
and tears trickled down his face.
Manchester United is his team
the current champions of Premier football,
but he was heart broken and bereft
as if they’d had a mighty fall.
I’m sorry but he doesn’t get my sympathy
and I can’t feel the slightest pity,
if he wants to know about real pain
come and be a fan of Coventry City.
So please pull yourself together
as others are a lot worse off than you,
because if you think times are tough
then you just haven’t got a clue !
