Wigan Poems

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 D-Day

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s D-day for Wigan indeed
But now if they fail to succeed
I know it sounds cruel
But goodbye Mr Jewel
I’m off to watch Rugby league

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Never mind if we go down

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The lure of the glory
The yell of the crowd
Now they all mean bugger all

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The JB is silent
The battle is lost
Oh how the mighty do fall

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But Wigan rejoice
No one is dead
It’s only a game after all

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We can stand proud
We lived the dream
Uncle Joe still has his mint balls
__________________________
Ready? We’re off

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The premiership isn’t much fun
Because when all’s said and done
Some over paid fairies
Drive flash Ferraris
And as we go down they move on

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 The talk is all over the town
It looks like Wigan are down
But if Paul’s on the ball
And Wigan don’t fall
Then he’ll be the jewel in the crown
