We Woz Robbed (Stiles)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The night has a thousand eyes
The ref has only two
And three assistants to deflect
The media ballyhoo

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Refs officiate the game
Unless the camera disagrees
Multi-angles unforgiving
The ref giving what he sees

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Introduce technology
To patrol game goal lines
Recorded singing replaces fans
Robots to eat the pies

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Until that day we must accept
That refs are only men
Mistakes are made and points are lost
But save them from the lions den

Notes

Referees can only give what they see. I can’t imagine football without debate and controversery; do we really need ‘football by numbers’ where it’s all air-brushed by technology? All that needs to be sanitised are the toilets.
