after the derby

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “way over yonder
down in’t Rusholme streets
folk in blue shirts will be kicking th’e feets,

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Reflect on a massiff loss,
deflate those bananas,
cant blame ‘Fergie time’ this time,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Gone is the battle,
over is the fight,
the game is settled
by a wonder strike,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Now red shirted matchstick men
and matchstalk cats and dogs
will be raising aloft
their matchwinning pints of Bodds”
