The Magic Waistcoat

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 England win a penalty shoot out
now I don’t want to gloat,
but the secret behind it ?
Gareth Southgate’s waistcoat.
Colombia played really dirty
they went for our players throat,
but the Three Lions stayed cool
all down to Gareth’s waistcoat.
Our supporters all love him
he really rocks their boat,
not just for his coaching skills
but more for his trendy waistcoat.
If Southgate wanted to be Prime Minister
he’d certainly get my vote,
not for his political views
I just like his waistcoat.
So if we win the World Cup
it would be an achievement of great note,
and the reason for the success ?
Gareth Southgates magic waistcoat !



All talk has been about Gareth’s trendy attire especially his liking for wearing waistcoats. But I can reveal the reason behind this, they aren’t ordinary waistcoats, they have magic powers, hence my poem !
So as long as he keeps one on during games we’ll keep on winning, but if he decides to ditch them, out we go !
