When Crouch scores

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When Peter Crouch scores
the doors of the Anfield faithful
will open wide
to receive him
and take him into
their hearts.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When Peter Crouch nets
all bets will be off
like the weight
on the shoulders
of the beanpole
target man.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When Peter Crouch notches
no more botches
or near misses
no more catcalls
or derision
from opposition fans.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When Peter Crouch breaks his duck
by luck or through skill
the curse will be lifted
and a smile grace the features
of that thin
haunted face.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When Peter Crouch gets a goal
the Kop will swallow him whole
and take him into their midst
all the kids will
pat him on the
head.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 When Peter Crouch scores
all those bores who thought
he couldn’t do it
will be proved wrong.
Until then the jury
is well and truly out.
