Eddie, Eddie and Daniel

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Talented, brawny and skilful,
Intelligent, thoughtful and wilful,
Many clubs sought to wine and dine him,
So desp’rate were they that they sign him.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The options were gradually whittled,
And silly proposals belittled,
Till soon there were just three contenders,
To sign one of our best defenders.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Eddie O’Rourke was quite eager
After watching him play Skonta Riga,
But the wife of his chairman said “Honey,
I think he would cost too much money.”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Eddie Fitzgibbons, however,
Came over a little too clever.
The contract was duly inspected,
And even more quickly rejected.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But Daniel O’Connor succeeded,
And signed the defender he needed.
The headline next day in the Sun –
“Two Eds are bitter – Dan won.”
