The Lyrics

The song title is in reference to the way Leeds United are currently playing, i.e., as half a team..... Explanations: Dave O'Leary - former Manager Don Revie - Manager during the 60's and 70's Peter Ridsdale - former Chairman who (figuratively) gambled and lost with the Club's finances Go down/Relegation - English football works on a divisional system - bad teams go down to a lower division, good teams are promoted
The decline started with Dave O'Leary
Peacocks supporter I'm ashamed to be
Hard to win matches when you cannot score
Not even good enough to play for a draw

Half-Leeds, their style of play infers
Half-Leeds, good old days are just a blur
Half-Leeds, subject of my scorn
Pull your fingers out, or you will go down I warn

We may as well sign up Krusty the Clown
Our defense, must be said, is less than sound
Their style of football's like a parody
Bring back the glory days of Don Revie

Half-Leeds, last weeks we lost to Spurs
Half-Leeds, how I want them like they were
Half-Leeds, I am so forlorn
All teams like to play us 'cause then goals they will score!

I try to stay upbeat but I'm ashamed
Million's we're in debt, and Ridsdale's to blame
Can't even pass the ball from man to man
To pay to watch them play is such a scam

Half-Leeds, in two-horse race come third
Half-Leeds, we would lose at 'search-a-word'
Half-Leeds, really out of form
Relegation beckons to Division One...

My late brother lived for Leeds United, and I feel he would have been dismayed to see how they've gone down the table. Thanks for a great parody!

Pickle, I am sorry to hear about our brother. At least he has the memory of the better times too. Thank you for your comments.
