Selecting the new manager

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hey, why don’t we have a reality show?
Phone in for the coach of your choice.
The popular vote is the right way to go,
Let Rasher and Niall have a voice.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 All the contestants can show us their skills
On Playstation games or Nintendo.
We’d watch their decisions without any frills
Or smearing or gross innuendo.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The money we raise when we get on the phone
Can help fund the manager’s salary.
Get people evicted till one’s left alone,
Depending on who’s in the gallery.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And thus we would all be inclined to support
The people’s mandated decision
Though, knowing our fickleness, ‘specially in sport,
We’ll soon revert back to derision.

Notes

Well, we have reality shows about everything else
