Roll Over Raithrovers

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m gonna write a little letter
gonna mail it to my local MP,
I wanna put on record,
feeling certain that he’s sure to agree,
how to buy Ronaldinho
and maybe also Thierry Henry..

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’s named Mr Brown
and recently has been in the news,
went to school in Kirkca’dy,
where he formed some political views,
a Raith Rovers supporter
from the top of his head to his shoes..

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’ll suggest that one day
at the Palace having tea with the Queen,
over cucumber sandwiches,
or strawb’ry jam scones with fresh cream,
when discussing the nation
and Kirkca’dy’s own football team..

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 That they both write a letter
to a Russian oil billionaire,
asking for a few million,
he’s bound to have money to spare,
it could make all the diff’rence
as to how our team’s fortune will fare..

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Roll over Raithrovers!
Roll over Raithrovers!
Roll over Raithrovers!
Roll over Raithrovers!
Roll over Raithrovers
and tell Tchaijockski the news!!
