Ref Aid

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Referee’s Association,
Acting with great clarity,
Tried to make a large donation
To a world-wide charity.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They gathered famous referees
From each and every continent,
Italians, Swedes and Japanese,
The blind and the incontinent.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Frisk was there, Collina too,
And also Graham Poll,
As well as that official who
Permitted Geoff Hurst’s goal.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In a recording studio,
They put themselves on vinyl.
Acoustically, it seemed as though
‘Twas in a men’s urinal.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 They whistled high, they whistled low,
They whistled hard and long,
They whistled fast, they whistled slow,
Depending on the song.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Ref’s Aid CD was released
Not far from Partick Thistle,
A veritable whistling feast,
They called, “The Vinyl Whistle.”
