Only numbers?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’ve a penchant for points
but so have they
we’re chasing hard
but Utd hold sway

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And even on our travels
every day it’s a tease
we’re mindful of the tube tannoy
‘mind the gap please’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 9-9-9
But it’s not yet an emergency
6-3-6-3
We’re still playing with such urgency
6-6-6
The sign of the Red Devil’s hoodoo
One-nil, one-nil, one-nil
Who knocks ’em out? We do

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then, we narrow it to a virtual point
Only to stumble
Utd even getting away with …
O’Shea forcing a tumble

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now it’s out of our hands
Like a Vaughan dropped catch
All we can do is keep up the pressure
Match after match after match

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And then just hope, as we continue to bang out
One-nil, one-nil, one-nil
That Utd crumble and wilt
To end up at Cold Trafford : won nil
