Sacrilege. Pure and Simple.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How about a jus with yer burger and chips,
Glazed onion jam on yer pie
Bovril served chilled with shaved artisan crisps
A “dog” with roast vegetable fries?*

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’ve a Reebok, Emirates, and The Stadium of Light
Where community centre’s once were
How long till the dollar signs running United
Deem Old Trafford be glazed toward it’s heirs?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Out in West London, where the roubles are rife
And the powers that be call the shots
The Chelsea pitch owners stood fast and united
So The Bridge for the moment stays put

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Old names like Burnden and Ewood ooze class,
Unlike the names of today
I yearn for the day at a packed Highfield Road
When The Doog, caused Sky Blues fan to sway.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Diet Pepsi Stadium, Kentucky Park
Who knows what they’ll name your abode?
Where will it all end, are they having a lark
What’ll happen to the great “Loftus Road”?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Mac Donalds Arena ain’t that far away
We’ve a Walker’s where a Filbert once stood
Then lo and behold I’ve just heard today
That midden Cashby ain’t up to no good.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Seems hallowed green turf in the North East
Where The Gallowgate choir resides
Is about to be re-named: The Sports Direct Arena
Howay man I cannae believe it,
Tis enough to cause tears on Tyneside!

Notes

This latest bit of news ain’t gonna go down too well amongst the Toon Army at the hallowed St Jame’s Park, is it? The next home game should be pretty interesting!

*A “dog” is the short and quick name for a hot-dog.

Money talks, dont listen to it.10cc.

Go well and be lucky.

Carefree………

Peace.
