To that holiday firm, next summers on again,
Yeah the slim chance that Israel
Gave us, of qualifying, has just gone down in flames”.

What’s that? You think I’m sounding sad
Well I have to say that me prides been hurt
Bar that I feel okay”.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “What? You’ve just seen me on the telly
And me hair was all a mess
Well I had to make out that I broken a sweat
Before talking to the press!”.

There’s hissing, booing, shouts
It’s a good job that Steve and Terry Venables
Have them big security blokes about”.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “What? We’ve been slaughtered on the telly,
By Shearer, Wright and co
They’re just jealous of the dough we earn
They’re nothing but a bunch of losers
Them sad and bitter old ex pro’s!”

The bloke from Sky just called
He want’s to talk to me on how
Come, we’re so crap at playing…… international football!”.



I wonder. Did this happen?
