Warnockers and Detractors

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Norwich City 2 : Sheffield United 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our mans walking the tightrope
We’re ready to give him a nudge
But we’re prepared to hold on to him longer
For Warnock we just hold a grudge

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When we won, our joy was OTT
We’d won three points, not the league
But we sang our hearts out anyway
Mr Warnock, he was peeved

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He greeted the final whistle
With a gesture of two fingers
He made our day in his own sweet way
And ensured that Nigel lingers

Notes

It’s not that we like Nigel but it’s easy to not like Warnock more. We weren’t battling for pride or promotion, we just wanted to get another one over on Warnock. He’s nasty in a pantomime villain kind of way and it makes a nice change for us to boo the opposition.
