WHY THEY CALL THEM THE BLUES

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Don’t sell up and go
Don’t think that this is the end
It must be a big egotistical blow
So take out your Visa and spend

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A hundred and twenty million quid
Yeah, I know it sounds like a lot
You’ll just have to make a few more bids
There must be somebody you forgot

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Why do you think they call them the Blues
Its because in football terms they have no clues
Spend all that money, Gooners think its funny
And still all they do is lose
Yes, that’s why we call them the Blues

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Beckham has hit bottom and you can help him out
You’ve heard about his trouble with Real Madrid
You can afford Golden Balls, there is no doubt
Just splash out another 100 million quid

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And Chelsea will continue singing the blues
He’d be more faithful to Rebecca Loos
Chelsea need Beckham, Beckham needs Chelsea
Both you and he will agree
Maybe he and Posh will even invite you to tea

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Don’t go crying to Sven, he can’t help you now
At least he’s showing a bit of loyalty
Ignoring England’s newest cash cow

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 What about Mutu
Now that’s what you call a flop
Has the pace of Winnie the Pooh
The shot of a well cooked lamb chop

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 And there is Juan Veron
You should have kept Forsell back from his loan
May as well face it,
Arsenal will not be dethroned

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Now you know why they call them the Blues
In football, you have to build a team and pay your dues
You can spend all your cash, but just stop buying trash
It’s the end of the season and Roman you lose
Enjoy your team and keep singing the blues

Notes

Heard the Elton song on the radio this morning and thought of the other “Blues”.
