Whats All This About?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Me daddy is an Irishman
So what does that make me?
“No Surrender To The IRA”
What’s that supposed to mean?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Whilst standing in the hallowed place
This crazy song rang out
This was at a football match
What’s that all about?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Are the team I follow protestants?
Our owner is a Jew
Our sponsor’s are an Arab airline
The Chinese are coming soon

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Very, very puzzling
At least to me it is
Human beings is what we are
Let’s try to just let live?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As Bob Paisley said ” this football is a very simple game”
How come all this other stuff
This hate and calling names?
As twenty two come on the field
The banter all flares up
But secretarianism and racism
Is starting to scare us

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 It has no place in football space
Or any other place
How come all these idiots
Are loathe to show their face?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 They say “it’s gone, no longer one
Of footballs problems now,
It’s just part of society”
That claim is rot and how!


Very topical this and sure to make a few people a little un-comfortable, but as I sit in me seat that’s cost me an arm and a leg. I’m getting a bit fed up with all this anti this and anti that stuff. It has no place at the match or at any other place in what we call society, has it? You, reader, tell me, cos I can’t make head nor tail of the whole thing.
