1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m a premiership footballer
wearing Armani suits
I’m paid a kings ransom
For just wearing my boots
With the makers brand name
Stitched inside each tongue
I intend making millions
While I’m still young.
My girlfriend is a model
Often seen on TV
A busy career girl earning as much as me.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’m a portaloo cleaner
It’s a unpleasant task
I’m provided with overalls,
Rubber gloves and a mask
My wife’s a school dinner lady
Spends all day on her feet
We find it a hardship just making ends meet.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Now this premiership footballer
Has become rather bored
So I have bought out my contract
And intend moving abroad.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And as for us……..

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Our two boys would love to watch their heroes
And we think it a shame
That many football mad youngsters
Are now priced out of the game.



Remembering the ‘ SHILLING ‘ boy’s end at St James’s Park
when I was a football mad youngster…..Happy days.
