The Original Double D

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Some years ago, his grandad introduced him into the Blackburn fold,
He fell in love with the game when he was only 9 years old,
This is the club for me, and for which i’m going to play,
And for many years ahead, this lad is surely gonna stay,

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 To dizzy’ish heights Dunny inspired his Rovers team,
He’s one of the finest midfielders, those Lancastrians had ever seen,
But like all good things, they usually come to an end,
And just as Damien had done earlier, he followed his Birmingham bound friend.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His folks still live in Blackburn Lancashire, and are big players in his life,
As he’s only a young ‘un, and he’s yet to find his wife,
We are a close knit family and surely me granddad would have told me if i hadn’t been pulling me weight,
In fact he wasn’t just me granddad, he was more like my best mate,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So, with his bags now packed, he’s moved onto pastures new,
And, there were many takers i promise you, he turned down quite a few,
But like Duga, Upy, and Sav, before him, when he spoke to Brucie the King,
It was only Keep Right On To The End Of The Road, that Dunny was gonna sing,

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As another great signing, he’s an England international, who comes alive in the final third,
He drives a grey Ferrari, and just like Clem he’s got a gorgeous bird,
So on and off the pitch, he really looks the part to me,
He ain’t the next Gazza, he’s the first David Dunn, the original Double D.
