The Reality of It All

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It wasn’t a dream
That I awoke from
After a long season’s
Sleep

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Reality set in today
The Arsenal were
On the pitch with
Moan United, as
Before

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But some
New names
New faces
Wore both strips

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But the badges
Were the same
And the result was
The same

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Arsenal wins

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Untouchable
Season wasn’t the dream
Of a fanatical Gooner

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 I awoke and still
The record stood
And the Cup was
Ours

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 And again today
We brought home
More silverware

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 But some of the faces
Changed
New Gunners
New Red Devils

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Some of the faces were
The same but in new
Strips

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Alan Smith
Not the legendary
Gunner
But the sad Leeds man
With the bad haircut
Bad hair coloring
And the bad attitude
Wore Moan U red

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 And he wore this red
Because he said
That he never won
Anything
With Leeds

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Congratulations Alan
You won something
Today
Courtesy of
Arsene Wenger’s
Undefeated Arsenal

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 A second place medal
Your loser status
Is confirmed
