When the Final Whistle Blew

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When the final whistle blew,
The nerves evaporated,
The niggly doubts
Replaced by shouts
As Shels fans celebrated.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When the final whistle blew,
All tension was forgotten,
The fears there’d been
Were clearly seen
As being misbegotten.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When the final whistle blew,
The crowd all rose together,
Cried out at those
Who snidely chose
To send us a white feather.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the final whistle blew,
All thoughts of Cork were banished,
The quest for news,
Win, draw or lose,
Was swept away and vanished.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When the final whistle blew,
Relief was unreserved,
For most agreed
Our three point lead
Was totally deserved.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 When the final whistle blew,
Success was proved conclusive.
Wins back to back,
Despite the flak,
Had not turned out elusive.
