Rock & Roll is the New Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hendrix covers little wings
Whilst Elvis just gets fat
Little Richard pounds the net
Chuck Berry you just can’t catch

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Jerry Lee with balls of fire
He rattles up and shakes
Jim “The Lizard” Morrison
Who dreams he’s William Blake

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Lennon in his pure white suit
Thinks red would suit him more
Bill Haley races down the clock
Whilst James Dean turns to score

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Fast as lightning all in black
Last Vegas Elvis Show
Carl Perkins in his blue suede boots
Runs rings around Big O

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Guy Mitchell signs up for the blues
Cochran pulls the strings
Big Bopper wears Chantilly lace
Ghosting down the wings

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s Cash in goal he walks the line
Hank Williams starts to cough
Kerouac makes his one last run
Jack Daniels pegs him back

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Joplin pulls down Bobby Magee
And sees her chances lost
Redemption near she rises up
She climbs but fails to cross

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Keith Richards with a vampire’s eye
Plays Ruby Tuesday wide
And when Jack Flash pours down on goal
The whole team scream “OFFSIDE!”

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Bob Dylan tackles Mr Jones
He’s through it’s one on one
Bowie thinks the lad’s insane
But Guthrie cheers him on

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Roger McGuinn is flying
He rises 8 miles high
To nod the winning goal
To Neil Young passing by

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Roger Daltrey’s musing
The What The Why The Who
Plant and Page talk team tactics
But end up in dispute

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Clapton fights with Robbie Fowler
Deciding who is God
We all know it’s Suarez
He’s a ballsy little sod!

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Editors: Great poem PM!
