Global Market.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the premiership global market
With exorbitant transfer fees
We have a short fall in home grown talent
So we all have to look overseas.
We have signed a unknown defender
From a club in far Timbucktoo
Plus a big blond stopper from Norway
And a wing back from northern Peru.
We are chasing this dashing young Frenchman
And a hardman from the Ukraine
Along with a striker from Egypt
But I cant remember his name.
We are linked with this young lad from China
Who’s grandparents were born in ‘THE TOON ‘
He say’s he wants to play for United
In fact he’d be over the moon.
Our dreams of fielding Eleven Geordies
Have burst like a childs toy balloon
They are more likely to come from down under
Than anywhere within reach of the TOON.
