Rumours In The City(Poets Taking Over?)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 there’s a rumour in the city
lots of emails flying round
Crispi says he was just passing
being shown around the ground
is it Crispi or Scolari
or is Kevin bidding too?
Clik The Mouse is in the background
we all know that he’s a blue

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Emdad Rahman’s an outsider
SB Ingle’s coming through
Denys Jones is in Italia
but so is José too
no-one’s ruled out of the running
Peter Gouldings’ a dark horse
even Hilary’s contending
now Obama’s stayed the course

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Crystal Tips another newie
I think something’s going on
there’s a lot that’s still to surface
should we rule out Elton John
even Liverpool supporters
Markie Thomas P Magure
must be thinking where’s it going
can the stakes go even higher

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 are the poets taking over?
that Apprentice lot are poor
we’re the football literati
we’re the future that’s for sure
who’s the writers in the shadows?
using names we do not know
some say Paige and some Page Turners
only time and tide will show

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Keira Knighley lives in London
could that maybe be a sign
Amy Winehouse has the profile
but with players can she rhyme?
no smoke without fire
no stone ever let un-turned
nothing starts without a reason
these are lessons we’ve all learned

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 no rest til it’s over
the media’s on the hop
no peace til it’s concrete
not until the rumours stop
Boris Johnson or Dom Joly
Ali G or Radiohead
no-one wants to go to Chelsea
so I’m off to Stroud instead.
