The Commons touch

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There are sweet spots
And there are sweet spots

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Young Chris must have gorged himself
As he put all his heft
Into shot struck with left

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 One helluva screamer
Lay credence to this dreamer
That there’s hope for us all!
For though Young Chris isn’t very tall
Today his head will be in the clouds
And recognised easily by the crowds

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But if new Boss Nigel, is anything like his Pop
All over-adulation will stop
It’ll be feet back on the ground
All conceit will meet with frowned
And Cloughie will burrow
Until he shall reap
Deserved reward
And Derby pride fully restored
