I Have a Beef

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So where do you stop
with this vegan thing?
No meat at the Lawn;
instead we’ll have quorn.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No welcome extended to
ex pros like Berger and
Venison is deffo
off the menu.
No money raising
summertime BBQ’s;
we daren’t risk putting
even Wanchop on the grill.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And what happens if
the boys draw meaty
teams in the cup?
We can’t play Tottenham,
Oldham, Rotherham
nor Liverpool unless they
change their name to Lentilpool.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And there’s no way
fixtures can be fulfilled
at Kidderminster or Kettering:
the very idea of travelling
to KFC is a non-starter.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Pinning all our hopes on
current Conference North leaders
coming up to the ‘prem’
and hoping that Nuneaton
means precisely what it
says on the tin.
