Goodbye Mike’ It’s All About You’ Dean

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 you were the one we loved to hate
your reputation wasn’t great
we dreaded when we knew
and evr’y time you ever came
we taunted you throughout the game
with “It’s All About You”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and in the middle you would be
surrounded in controversy
whenever you came back
so many times you spoilt the show
and we would always let you know..
“the w**ker in the black”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and even when you were’nt in charge
you always had to give it large
like some big macho male
and when you came here as a fan*
with Tranmere we all saw you stand
upon the leaning rail

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 yes you were who we loved to hate
your reputation wasn’t great
we dreaded when we knew
and evr’y time you ever came
we taunted you throughout the game
with “It’s All Bout You”

Notes

Mike Dean retires .Mike Dean, the Premier League ref the fans love to hate. After 22 years, 560 games, 2,000 yellow cards and 114 reds, it’s time for the controversial man in black to step down. The * refers to when FGR played Tranmere in the play offs a few seasons and Mike Dean who was stood on the open standing terraces with their fans, climbed up on top of the leaning rail punching the air. Hooligan? Should have given him self a red card for dangerous behaviour.
