Rewriting History

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I don’t believe that I said that
I thought Glenn Crowe was slow and fat.
That statement, sure, is quite absurd –
I think I must have been misheard.
Actually, the phrase I used –
Before it was so disabused –
Was that I thought that Mister Crowe
Was far from being fat and slow.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Nor did I state, as I recall,
That Bobby Ryan should wear a shawl
And stay inside throughout the day,
Lest he should frighten kids away.
In fact, I stated that I pity
Those who do not find him pretty,
And thought this bronzed Adonis god’ll
Have no problems as a model.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I did not say in rhyme or prose
A word ‘bout Colin Hawkins’ nose,
And certainly I would refute a
Charge I ridiculed his hooter,
For, as I’ve previously cautioned,
Said nose is perfectly proportioned,
And is the ultimate example
Of one that’s neither bent nor ample.

Notes

Whats a poor fan to do when you sign three of the best players from your biggest rivals?
