The Double

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Who’s that bloke in the dugout?
I’m sure I’ve seen him before…
those glasses, the hair, that Devil-
may-care insouciance of his grin,
but is it he, is it he, is it Him?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He looks like a normal bloke,
but not quite Normal enough…
he might think himself a bit Special,
it’s time to call his bluff…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Oy! Four eyes! You! Yes, you!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You shamelessly brazen impostor!
You’re not a manager at all –
not even a lowly club doctor!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Don’t invoke my ire!
Don’t provoke the Kop to anger!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 You’re not our Jurgen at all―
you’re his Gegenpressing
Kloppelganger!
