1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The big boys come out to play
Stepping carefully
Into the banana skinned arena
The might against the minnow.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Premier league clubs
Trying not to fall.
Lower league clubs
Shooting for the moon.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Non-league clubs
Playing for cash and glory
Have nothing to lose.
Each leg is their personal Cup Final.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Oldham and Man City,
Yeading and Newcastle
(Crass remarks aside)
Stoke and Arsenal.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Mighty Man U
Held at home no score,
By lowly Exeter.
The stuff of dreams

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 For some, their last appearance
Others will move on
Expensive managers take it seriously again
The magic re-woken
