Lift and Shift

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You want what moving?
You want it moving where?
No problem – give us a shout.
Box it, label it,
We’ll pick it up
We’ll store it
We’ll even tell you where we’ve put it.
We’ll move your desk, cupboard, and cabinets.
On match days
We’re on hand for whatever is required,
And we’ll help clear up after the game.
We’re just the stadium odd job men.
We’ve been here for years,
And we’re known as “Lift and Shift”
Respected by all in the stadium,
From the chairman
Right down to the players.
We’re not paid millions, like the ball kickers,
But we enjoy the arena just as much.
So when you next go
To your chosen stadium
Just think
“Who does that?”
and it will doubtless be
“Lift and Shift”


For Paul and Little Joe at the Reebok
