Combat with Lawro

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Camp Lawro! It’s debatable whether he’s the best pundit on screen
Fun to watch though, when he vents his spleen
I met him once at a charity event
Great Ormond’s footy funday, I was sent off for dissent
The golden ticket footy match
A superstar XI, a plan we needed to hatch
Lawro, Ray Stubbs, Nigel Pearson
If we won I promised I’d do the ‘Merson’
A 50/50 ball
To close to call
Both feet up, mind the gap
I ended up in poor Lawro’s lap
Sheer agony! It became clear I’d hit him where it hurt
A young girl screamed at me, I hid my head in my shirt
Red card! head up, I trudged off graceful as a swan
A heartbeat later the final whistle, hurrah we’d won!
