They Say Being England Manager

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They say being England manager
Can seriously damage yer
But Curbs is in the reckoning
The hot seat it’s a-beckoning

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s bye-bye to McLaren
His legacy is barren
And ringing in the new
We have to name a few

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But I say let’s have Curbs
I’ll try to find the verbs
To tell you why he’s right
And not a load of rubbish

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Unlike the predecessors
What madness did possess us
To put them in the job
And listen to their gob?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So now I rest my case
And let’s cut to the chase
Cos Curbs is in the frame
An asset to the game

The last line of verse 3 doesn’t rhyme because the original word in the version posted on Skunkers would not be acceptable.
