"Phil Neville Went Down To Porsche"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

As far as I am aware, Phil and Gary Neville don't drive Porsches. Maybe this goes some way to explaining why :-) The Fergie mentioned at the end is, of course, (Sir) Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United for whom both the Neville brothers play.

One last thing: you need to pronounce 'Porsche' properly (i.e. enunciating the final 'e'... pretty much so that it rhymes with Georgia)
Phil Neville went down to Porsche
He was looking for a set of wheels
Because he heard, he'd been given the word
They were doing some righteous deals
When he came across young Gary
Who was likewise wanting a car
And Phil said "Bro, let's give it a go
'Cause I'm faster than you are"

So Gary says "No way, man
You'll only see my back
You ain't that fast, I'll kick your ass
Come on, let's hit the track
Now you think you can drive real quick
So here's just what we'll do
I'll bet a 911 you son of a gun
Cause I think I'm quicker than you"

So Phil said "Get your timer out
And then we can begin
And I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret
Cause I'm the best that's ever been"

Gary start your engine up
And drive fast as you can
Cause you're riding in a Porsche
'Gainst a brother who's da man
And if you win
You get this shiny Porsche, you're a star
But if you lose, Phil Neville gets the car

Phil Neville finished off his lap
With scorching tyres of flame
And though he flew I guess he knew
Their split times were the same
As he got out o' his Porsche
The younger Neville said
"No more o' this crap of timing laps
It's time to race head to head"

{Sound of two flat-six 300bhp supercharged violins}

Wheels spinning on the starting line
Neck and neck round the bends
Driven insane through the chicane
Only one way this race ends:

Fire on the racetrack, turn boys turn
The Nevilles' gonna spin off, crash and burn
Pickin' at the debris, hittin' the deck
Was a new Porsche, now an old wreck

And Fergie swore and cursed them both
And said he'd take their souls
With no Neville brothers at the back
His defence was full of holes
When he saw Roy Keane belting up
Then Fergie finally twigged
That Porsche man's an Arsenal fan
I'm bettin' the cars was rigged

Fire on the racetrack, turn boys turn
Manchester United crash and burn
Bet you're wishing with every skid
You hadn't sold Beckham to Real Madrid
MP3 file should be here

Does this mean you´re a MU fan or not? Good text, though I don´t know the original. Made me think of an idea I had back when Beckhams future employeer was very much a big ? and the shoe kicking incident was still pretty fresh. "You gotta fight for your right to Beckham" to the tune of "You gotta fight for your right to party" by the Beastie Boys. I mean, it does open with "KICK IT", though the rest of the sketching never really lived up to that opening and the main line. :-)

Good parody!

No, I'm not a Man U fan - it was one written around the rhythm of the words in the title (and the bit at the end: "The Porsche Man's an Arsenal fan/I'm bettin' the cars was rigged") - have you had a listen to the mp3? I downloaded a real Porsche engine soundtrack for the bit in the middle :-)

Does Mrs Neble play for Manchester United, too? It can't be *that* similar - if you've written something, post it anyway. But please don't expect me to remove this one.

(ABC) Really well done and some great rhymes. 5s
Rick D - August 23, 2004 - Report this comment
Well done. Some references are very British, but this Yank can relate.

(ABC) I listen to the BBC enough to get the gist.

Not too much into international soccer, or any soccer for that matter, so I can't say how I feel about this parody, much less vote on it. Also, IDKTOS.

P: I take these aren't any of the singing brothers Neville... s'ok, I like this anyway! (Is my memory correct that I've also heard a recording of this one?)

(ABC) Cool story.
Paul Robinson - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) Sounds like these guys drive as though they were playing soccer; running into stuff, running over stuff, ending up splattered and splayed all over the place. Good job.

Phil, as you know, I know exactly what you are talking about! Tempted to give you ones for mentioning Man U and Fergie AND Arsenal in the same song! But instead I'll give you fives and let you know this is on my shortlist!

(ABC) Very well crafted, altho' I personally couldn't get into it... 5-4-5

Took me 7 years to find this one, but this Gooner loves it! It might be in bad taste to write of Man United players crashing, but then, anybody who still calls Liverpool fans "murderers" (Heysel '85, Hillsborough '89) has no right to get riled up over references to Munich '58.
