Please don’t take him just because you can
Rob Green, Rob Green, Rob Green, Rob Green
Don’t make him the sacrificial lamb
What’s the point of selling him
We’ll only let more goals in
Our team relies on him – Rob Green
What’s the point of making cash
To spend on strikers rumoured flash
The carrot growers sponsor him – Rob Green
They think he can see in the dark
He didn’t see that back pass by Mark
Rob Green
Portsmouth gained a penalty kick
How many times, well take your pick
Retaken twice, three times he let it in
Another game without a win – Rob Green
Rob Green, Rob Green, Rob Green, Rob Green
Please just sell him while you still can

Notes

The only Norwich City player likely to attract bids. We need the money
but maybe we need Greeno more. Being practical I’d rather see him sold and playing for England in the World Cup 2006 than for Norwich in the Championship. Another New Year of optimism!
