What’s In A Name?
Leave a comment on verse 1 1
Oh Philip Larkin, we need you at this hour
As Hull’s famous poet, you could silence that shower
Who want to change Hull City’s name
Into Tigers – it’s basically greed that’s to blame
Are they cuddly little animals in a gold and black jacket
Like Tony the Tiger from the cereal packet?
“Fans Unite” is the moral of this ditty
And don’t let your owners mess with HULL CITY.
True story: Hull City is the only club name in the Football League where one cannot colour in an “enclosed loop” in one of the letters. Yet another reason for it to keep its name!
