The Camberwell Carrot

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He’s called the Camberwell Carrot or the Ginger Zidane
now in the small town of Wigan, Ben Watson’s the man.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Coming on as a late sub, to try play his part
he planted a header past City’s Joe Hart

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A defeat for the rich men, neutral fans all rejoice
so cloth caps off to Whelan, Martinez and Boyce.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But the man of the moment is the Camberwell Carrot
who made Roberto Mancini as sick as a parrot.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So well done Ben Watson, from an old Palace fan
where you’re still fondly known as the Ginger Zidane.



Prince ‘Arry, Ginger Zidane or the Camberwell Carrot were the nicknames Crystal Palace fans had for Benny Watson. Once had a dream that Emmerson Boyce lifted up the cup and the Carrot scored a cracker. Unfortunately in the dream they were both playing for Palace not Wigan. Congrats to Wigan and screw the powers to be who have tried everything to destroy what was once the greatest cup competition in the world.
