I have a little secret. Do you promise not to tell?
If you breathe a word of it, you’ll likely go to Hell.
Promise you won’t say it. Ensure your lips are sealed.
This secret that I’m telling simply cannot be revealed.
The FAI Cup Final is being played this week,
About which game, the great unwashed have barely heard a squeak.
Waterford and Longford will both be coming up
To hear the roar at Lansdowne Road and try and win the Cup.
The way that things are shaping, there will barely be a crowd,
Nobody knows about it and exposure’s not allowed.
Media publicity would likely fall quite flat,
So keep it very firmly underneath your woolly hat.
The ads have swamped the radio in seeking our support
For Ireland v The Aussies in a makey-uppy sport.
But the boyos have no money for to publicise the League,
It’s been a long hard season and they’re feeling the fatigue.
The two teams are provincial, so no-one gives a damn,
Or is that an example of how cynical I am?
Whatever is the reason, please do not spread the word,
A blanket ban about the match is obviously preferred.
