Malignant Cancer.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Straight up I expected to be behind
When I pressed Red Button on T.V
Of late our defence, not to be unkind
Seems as resolute as a sieve.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Listening to JJ in the Five Live studio
Passing comment on the game
I caught a vocal South West London braggadocio
Prevalent in the back-ground, down at White Hart Lane.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What with wrapping presents
Cleaning the oven, and brewing pots o tea
I didn’t catch the gist of JJ’s comments
On the incidents he could see.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Seeing we were two nil up
I composed a flippant text
Texted it to all me pals and those I Love
In the short verse coming next…

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way
Oh what fun, it is to win two nil at Spurs away.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Then…the malignant cancer in modern day society,
and I don’t give a toss for what the politicians say?
Quite rightly became the main talking point of football on T.V
During Sunday evenings Match of The Day.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Peace.


No matter what we, politicians, PFA,
and a list too long to mention choose to say…
This blight in modern day society hasn’t gone away.
