Young at Heart

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Young at Heart, oh what a start
Defeat by Athlone Town
As Lynch drew out, he gave a shout
Was that a smile or frown?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’ll take the lad under our wings
We’ll teach him all we know
Not sure about his nasty streak
That can be worked on though

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’ll show him we’re just as bad
As heard from people muttering
Now here’s that list we mentioned
Start off with Jobbers guttering

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Wash Lynchs car, paint Ronies fence
Your team mates might pitch in
My wife said wait until the end
To get her new kitchen.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We’ve also months of work ahead
To mould you, young Deasy
Don’t over hit your corners, cos
You’ll displease F.O.C.C.

Notes

The supporters group that I am a part of, the Friends Of Cork City, have sponsored a player for the 2010 season.
Paul Deasy is now officially ours.
Poem published in the COrk City FC match programme for our cup game against Blubell Utd last Friday night.
