Where Were Ya?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Was Ruby Tuesday curry night?
Or Doris Day a public holiday in York?
Anyone who is anyone has heard of them
But no-one heard the ‘three hundred men’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Is midweek at Norwich as dreaded as Grimsby?
When people drop out for reasons so flimsy
Bald men stay in to wash their hair
And watch Question Time with Tony Blair

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Twenty three thousand of us turned up to be bruised
It’s never easy playing the Blues
Fleet of coaches not needed, the trains could strike
So few away fans, they surely came on a bike

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Is this the Birmingham travelling fandom?
Riding to matches on a Goodies-style tandem*
Or is it that Norwich as a trip out is poor
Not worth three hours on a coach any more

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Is it our prices, are we just too dear?
You’re top of the league, you should go anywhere
Winning 1-0, we had a good time it seems
Away fans didn’t turn up, just like their team

Notes

Surprised to see so few Blues fans at our place on Tuesday night. (More surprised that Norwich won). Still, on that performance we’ll be playing you again next season. Don’t wobble now you Blues, losing a Play-Off final is no fun and both sides know that…

* for our younger viewers, the Goodies tandem is adapted to carry
three people…
