R-E-S-P-E-C-T

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Eamonn Collins is a well-liked man,
Respected by each League of Ireland fan.
Things didn’t go according to the plan,
Andy left him carrying the can,
Didn’t comprehend the Yin and Yan.
Now Eamo’s not a member of the clan,
Because he wasn’t paid enough respect.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And what about the legend, Liam Coyle,
The finest player to grace the Derry soil?
Each Candystripe supporter must recoil,
To see his hero’s blood come to the boil,
After all those years of sweat and toil.
But now they’ll simply have to take their oil,
Because he wasn’t paid enough respect.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Football, in its current situation,
Cannot afford such needles aggravation.
Showing someone else consideration
Needn’t be a full-time occupation.
A little bit of thought assimilation
Averts a lot of bitter condemnation,
It simply is a question of respect.
