The name stays the same.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ‘Newcastle Broon Ale’ now brewed in Yorkshire
St James’ Park changing it’s name
The demise of these Geordie institutions
Is the world finally going insane ?
But as long as the Tyne flows through my City
And as long as Grey’s monument stands tall
It will forever be known as ST JAMES’ PARK
Our spiritual home of football.
But the chubby shopkeeper has dropped a right clanger
With a name that we’ll laugh when we see
For ‘ASHLEY’S SPORTS DIRECT ARENA’
Spells out A.S.D.A. to me.

Notes

These people can call it what they like, but to me, and hundreds of thousands like me world wide, it will always be ST JAMES’ PARK and quite simply never anything else.
