London derbies when it’s raining
Can take your breath away
Especially if playing The Arsenal,
At home and that flowing game they play.
Arshavins like a Jack-In-The Box
Cesc Fabregas is class
Their pass and move is great to watch
As it glide’s across the grass.
The Drog had nicked a pair of goals
“We’ll slaughter ‘em ’ ” we thought
By halftime we were on a roll
As we turned round at two nought.
Then we lost our concentration
It was backs against the wall
Cech was making save after save
As we toiled to ride the storm.
Drogba hits the woodwork
Seemed our third weren’t far away
Then The Arsenal start to turn it on
In that wonderful way they play.
We couldn’t get our foot on the ball
Or string a move together
It was lets dig in and fight our corner
All of us, and John Terry.
As our midfield was dragged all over the place
The game was in the balance
Though on this occasion I’d have to say
Our hard work outshone their talent.
Just how long did The Arsenal have the ball?
I’d love to see the stats
You can play possession football all afternoon
But it’s goals that win… The Match!
