THE ARSENAL ROLLS ON…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Travelling back to North London
From the match on the south coast
Won the FA Cup quarter final
Gooners have the right to boast

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The team just kept on scoring
One two three four five goals
Matches are far from boring
When Arsenal are in control

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But Arsene Wenger will tell you
We haven’t won anything yet
No matter how many balls flew
Into the back of Pompey’s net

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They don’t give out any prizes
For winning a quarter final game
They’re only for the team that rises
That will achieve this kind of fame

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But take nothing away from them
The Arsenal were impossible to beat
They played like a polished gem
Quite an impressive feat

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But the attention is on March 10
Against Celta Vigo from Spain
Time to do it all over again
If we want to continue this campaign

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We beat them in their own backyard
Even managed three away goals
Just have to keep on attacking hard
Exploit their defensive holes

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Visitors find it hard to focus
They know they don’t belong
The Arsenal swarm like locusts
The Gooners sing their songs

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Keep on rolling Gunners
The treble is at hand
Continue to be front-runners
And take us to the promised land

Notes

I knocked this one out after the FA Cup match down in Portsmouth. Took me this long to tidy it up! So far, so good, the words still hold true!
