Here’s To The Sweet FA!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Our young fella looked at his ticket
For the semi this Saturday night
Had the sweet FA missed out a digit
Surely price printed ain’t right?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’re playing The Arsenal at Wembley
In a partizan North v West tie
Where it’s only a pony to get in and see it*
Which strikes me as a bit of alright.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As one of them whining old punters
Who thinks things have got right out of hand
Regarding the entrance prices for youngsters
Said gestures a plus for skint fans.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I pay more than that for our home games
Even though ticket prices are frozen
So post this I’ll be writing a letter of complaint
To the poor oiligarch, us Blues fans call… Roman!



*A pony is cockney slang for twenty five quid.

Which is how much a ticket is for tomorrows big game at Wembley.

Which ain’t too bad is it?
