Did He Really Refuse To Go On?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sat on the bench with a cob on
Will he or won’t he go on
His agents just had a few bob on
That a move could be coming along!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Face like a cracked vase
He just can’t be asked
To get out, and put it in for the team.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What of the fans who have travelled
To the arts end of nowhere?
Supporting their side in a slump.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Watching some highly paid mensch
Butt stuck fast on the bench,
They’re entitled to get the right hump!



I can’t really believe this story, about a seemingly real bona fide bloke, but if it is true, then….oh dear.
