The Stadium of Light Should be a multi-purpose Venue

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Stadium of Light should be a multi-purpose venue
It’s not been a success with only footie on the menu
Just think of gannin there to get a load of Britney Spears
But it’ll take a lot to overcome the locals fears

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But when you think about it, it makes a lot of sense
And comes a time in all our lives to get down off the fence
So come on all you mackems you can still have all your footie
But on Tuesdays every fortnight you’ll be able to see Sooty

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The older ones among you will remember with affection
All those terrible old acts that didn’t bear inspection
Well now they’re coming back again to haunt you on the weekdays
Let’s hope they go some way towards improving all the bleak days

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You’ve now got to endure down there, in division one
Which surely promises to be a source of endless fun
For all your faithful buddies up here in the Toon
But nonetheless we hope to see you back here with us soon

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We could go on with no problem about who would top the bill
From all those crappy acts that are well over the hill
But the crappiest act of all that most deserves a hand
It’s the one that plays on Saturday by name of Sunderland


I’ve been chronicling the disasters of Leeds United all through 2003. Before that I was active on talk of the tyne, the NUFC board on rivals.net laying into Sunderland in a spirit of friendly rivalry, with not a little tongue in cheek. Here’s one about plans for the SoL.
