Same to you Trevor.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was a Tuesday night around 72,
and we’d drawn scoreless with the Brum,
when out of the players entrance,
I saw Trevor Francis come.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Waiting for his team coach,
suited like a toff,
when I asked him for his autograph,
he told me to eff off.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As I raised my two right fingers,
and shaped them in a V.
I swore I’d one day say the same,
thing to him with glee.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Fast forward thirty years,
and I have to call a truce,
when Francis is brought in from Brum,
in place of Stevie Bruce.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Ever since the day,
with Palace he was hired,
I’ve waited patiently in the wings,
until old Trev was fired.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We had a couple of —– good cup runs,
but in the league we weren’t too clever,
so it was only a matter of time,
’til we shipped out poor old Trevor.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 I got the news last Friday,
a Good one it was too,
that my old mate Trevor Francis,
had finally got the shoe.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 I was totally heartbroken,
that Trevor’s gone away,
so much so that I celebrated,
with a bottle of Chardonnay.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 So as you unceremoniously told me,
many years apast,
do the same yourself Trev,
and can you do it fast.
