Don’t support those guys up the road – Spurs
They can’t keep a manager. They can’t win games.

You want excitement? Support me!
I’m the best team in the Premiership. Support me!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No. No. Don’t look up there. Don’t look at them.
Don’t look at Manchester United.
They’re not a team. They’re not a football team.
Then what are they? What are they?
They’re a bank. They have billions of pounds.
They spend millions of pounds on players.
They’re a bank. They’re worth more than
several African and Asian nations.
They sell shirts. They sell socks.
They change uniforms so that you’ll buy more shirts.
