The New England Team Plan?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 What we need right now’s a scandal
When the team’s away on a World Cup jaunt
Where the cosseted lives of our players
Are under a threat that scares and haunts

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 That when they arrive back to blighty shores
All is not quite as it was
No more guaranteed displays of greed
From me, me, me type yobs

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Unemployed and unprepared
For the harsh reality of life
Where to lose one’s job without prior notice
Is a threat we punters have all our live’s

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 “You can’t do that me after all I’ve done for you
Just send my career down the urinal”
Well here’s some news for you my overpaid friend
That’s what’s happening to over half of the Italian team
And today guess what?……….. They’re playing in a World Cup final!


Ah well we’ve tried it seems everything else, haven’t we?
