The Lyrics

a geordie is a person from newcastle uk
goodbye robson green
although i never liked you at all
you had a face that loved it's self
but it made my skin crawl
i've trawled throughout your back work
and i've withered with the strain
like a hamster on a treadmill
your doin' in my brain

and it seems to me
you sang your songs
like a geordie full of wind
never knowing what the key was
till jerome came in
i would have liked to kick you
like the others did
the geordie burnt out long before
the talented mr flynn

rocket man was tough
the same old role you always play
simon cowells new superstar
your whine was the price we paid
even though we tired
oh that dress still haunted you
the sunday papers laughed and said
that robbie green
was bound and crude

and it seems to me
you sang your songs
like a geordie full of wind
never knowing what the key was
till jerome came in
i would have liked to kick you
like the others did
the geordie burnt out long before
the talented mr flynn

goodbye robson green
from an old fan that you never used to know
who sees you as something no more hysterical
more than just sour
marry flynn and go

Had to look the guy up - June 15, 2006 - Report this comment
Has the same exact birthday as Brad Pitt, but unlike Pitt, I don't want to punch his lights out -- and that was true of Pitt well before he met Angelina.

(ABC3) Unfathomable to anyone outside of the UK, definitely, but the pacing was spot on enough to give me a smile.

This idea is quite original, not the same old same old. 5's.--MM

(ABC-3) I don't know the guy either but, gave you a 545, Tomario. It was interesting, well paced but not hilarious. :-)

(ABC3-G) Like the others, I had no idea what this about either, but it matches TOS well.

(ABC) I like the Rocket Man & Simon Cowell references.

(ABC-G) Wait...was this dude on the British equivalent of American Idol? I dunno. Anywho, "you had a face that loved it's self but it made my skin crawl" is a brilliant line.

(abc3-G) paced very nicely and I also don't know the dude, but way to go with getting things off your chest, tomario - 555
Kristof Robertson - September 27, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3G) Now I know I've integrated into British society, coz I totally understand this parody. I detest Robson Green; Robson and Jerome wer the biggest piles of musical w**k god ever breathed life into. So 555 for the sentiment

Robson Green is talanted, unlike the parody comedy writer of this song. The pacing was good, but that is it.
