There’s an “Ex footballer and broadcaster” on “Newsnight Review”
What! Are they running out of guests?
It’ll be all “Er… yer know what I mean or er… they’ll have to up the tempo,
He’ll be………. real quality at best”!

No this bloke was interesting, more than capable of joining a debate
But, what’s usual at that time of night is that they’re out, getting off their face
No seriously he was reviewing plays at the theatre, films, the latest books
The other panelists seemed quite in awe of him, as they caste admiring looks

What? A footballer talking about the arts, plays that kinda thing?
Usually its Prada, cars, birds, the booze and bling
He spoke about reading Joyce’s “Ulysses” when he was just a boy at school
Get away with you, you’re after having me on, do you take me for a fool?

Are you telling me that those who play in and go to “The match”
Aint all eighteen carat planks of wood?
Yeah, see for yourself next time you have a Saturday spare
Don’t believe all you read in the papers
Typecasting those do to with “The football”
It might do you some good!

So a big up to Wee Pat Nevin
Still an interesting bloke, like when he played
Not all of us who love “The game” are drunken thugs and morons
In spite of what the papers say!
