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

Notes

Lines on the forced dismissal of Steve McLaren after England’s failure to qualify for the European Championship.

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