Telephone Numbers

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How much is he worth?
How much did we pay?
So many numbers
By a bagful of zeros.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Is that per week?
Hells teeth!!!
I hope he’s worth it,
Cry the fans,
As they’ll be footing the bill.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His weeks pay
I have to work two years for.
And how much goes to the leeches?
Will no one cry


After Bobby Robson’s comment how, in the real world, footballers would be hard pressed to get a job at £20k a year, let alone £20k a week.
And guess who the leeches are!
