Sanity We Welcome You !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I hear Beckhams next stop is the US of A
To wind down his career
Nobody can afford him
In Spain or over here
Is common sense prevaling
To obscene wage demands?
Is sanity calling a halt at last
To fat cat agents qualms?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Beckhams not the problem
But the market has gone mad
Is Rio ( The Best defender in the World ? )*
Worth a hundred and twenty grand
Sanity we welcome you
Back with open arms
As the game itself gets creedence
By refusing such demands !

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A working class game
Paying wages
That heads of state would wish
We’re off to hell in a hand cart
If we carry on like this
“My career is short, a broken leg
Could end all this tomorrow”
How much money can one man need?
Away with tales of sorrow !

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A broken leg won’t end yer life
Or put you on the street
Get real and not in Madrid
Its rubbish that you bleat !

Notes

His agents words! Certainly not mine !

Is sanity coming over the hill to restore our faith in sensible salary’s for footballers ?

peace.
