Well At Half Time There Were These Two Blues.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 T’was like the beach at Brighton
That day at Kenilworth road
As the sun shone on those enlightened
Decked out in summer clothes

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 At the interval we took the rays
And topped up fading tans
As the tannoy belted out some tunes
To entertain the fans

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As an intro played, across the way
Two fans in Chelsea’s end
At first began to groove and sway
Then two pair of knees to bend

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 First miming to the record,
They both started to dance
Oblivious to all around them
As if in a terrace trance

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Fans browsing through their programmes
Took time to watch the show
That these two fella’s with all the moves
Were putting on with gusto

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 In perfect harmony, they danced
Both singing every note
A clap, a strut, a pirouette
Those twists that Chubby throws

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 When the record sadly reached it’s end
They both came down to earth
Whilst fans around them clapped their hands
For all that they were worth

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The pair of them seemed sheepish
Embarrassed, rather shy
Then milked the applause like true performers do
With a bow that caught the eye

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Never ever seen the likes of that
Before or since at the match
That day we went to Luton Town
And caught that double act

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The music that they danced to, on that summer day,
With their swift and swirling feet?
That caused the terraces at Kenilworth Road to bop and sway
As they were set alight, to Jackie Wilson’s….Reet Petite!

Notes

A true story and great half time entertainment!

Just after our (Chelsea’s) away ban was lifted. We left ‘The Smoke’ on a journey to that wild God forsaken outback known as….Luton Town. To watch the boys perform on the road, where we caught this brilliant double act giving it their all in the interval.
