The BBC hoped for an Upset

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The BBC hoped for an upset,
They showed the match live on TV.
But when Kevin Friend blew for full-time,
The losers were HCFC.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Tigers they sure made a bright start,
They scored after forty-five secs.
But Everton were not downhearted,
Demarai Gray soon found the Net.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now Anthony Gordon’s a livewire,
He’s one of our favourite sons.
He linked up just perfect with Kenny,
To let Gomes make it two-one.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Tigers refused to surrender,
They fought back with tooth and with claw.
Roared on by their raucous supporters,
Before long they’d levelled the score.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 No replay, so extra time needed,
We feared it might go to Spot-kicks.
But then came a beauty from Townsend,
Once more our Andros did the trick.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Some Toffee fans can’t stand Benitez,
They’re hoping that he’ll get the sack.
But he’s got us into the fourth round,
So why don’t we get off his back?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Some say in the next tie we’ll crash out,
Some say that we’re bound for Wemblee.
But one thing we Bluenoses all know:
It’s high time we won a Trophee.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So, bring back, bring back,
Bring back that Cup from Wemblee, Wemblee.
Bring back, bring back,
Oh, bring back that Pot to GP!
