Tony Adams

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 No-one calls you Donkey anymore,
Only a fool,
Long gone are the days
When you acted the mule.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You did your time
Didn’t you Tony,
And emerged from your cell
A completely new pony.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You worked and you trained,
Completed the course.
Turned yourself into
A thoroughbred racehorse.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Now time is moving on,
You’ll soon be put out to stud.
You’ve grafted and worked
Through the rain and mud.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Your limbs are aching,
Tired and sore,
But be proud.
No-one calls you donkey anymore.

Notes

I have no idea what “inspired” this. I need therapy…
