Rod Hull and Emu? No?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Swans, Tigers, Canaries
And as I’m often away with the Fairies
I never saw the ostrich coming

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Bantams, Magpies, Foxes
But where we tick the boxes
Not a sign of an ostrich

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Robins, Wolves and Stags
To players, fans and wags
The ostrich was off the radar

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Hornets, Imps and Eagles
And all the legal beagles
Suddenly sniffing around

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Black Cats, Bulls and Bees
Oh how we like to tease
There’s no longer an elephant in the room!



Inspired by Nigel Pearson’s apology to reporter Ian Baker, who Pearson referred to as an ‘ostrich’ in a testy interview, after losing at home this week to Champions-elect Chelsea.
