The European Cup 2008

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh great!
Man U
And Chelsea too,
The clubs with all the lolly.
Though fans may flaunt
This Russian jaunt,
It makes me melancholy.
The clubs that splash
Such sums of cash
Should really suffer badly,
While others fall,
Go to the wall,
And count each penny sadly.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Yes money talks
And greed now stalks
The land where once pure talent
Decided cups
And downs and ups.
Or am I being ungallant?
Should I extol
Dear Ashley Cole
And Ferdinand’s composure?
Or should I weep
Myself to sleep
And dream of Ujpest Dozsa?
