Original Song Title:
"The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald"
Parody Song Title:
"The Wreck Of The Tottenham Hotspur"
The legend lives on from the Premiership on down
of the game that some blokes call “the footie.”
The game, it is said, never gives up her dead
in the cities or coal towns so sooty!
With a load of big quid, foreign investors slid
into Chelsea and Manchester City.
The League good and true is a bone to be chewed
but the results have turned out not pretty!
The team that’s the pride plays out on Merseyside.
Reds of Liverpool with eighteen titles.
As football clubs go, it’s been bigger than most
and the Everton blues are their rivals.
Concluding some match with some scores in a batch
Liverpool fans have reason for talking.
The lords of Anfield are sure they’ll never yield.
And, alone, they say, you’re never walking.
The windbags to east made a tattletale sound
for their team called Manchester United.
And every man knew, as Sir Alex did, too
that “ManUre” is hated and spited!
Up north is a band that is called Sunderland
and their people are known as the Mackems.
The Newcastle “Toons” think the Mackems are goons
and the “Geordies” would like to attack ‘em!
When Arsenal came into Spurs’ White Hart Lane
Tottenham knew it’s too rough to play ya.
When struck 2 PM, Wenger’s boys rushed right in
and said, “Fellas, it’s been good to slay ya!”
The Captain kicked the ball past manager Martin Jol
and it’s clear they can’t play no good soccer.
Walcott scored on pass in from Cesc Fabregas,
brought the wreck of the Tottenham Hotspur!
Does anyone know where the love of the game goes
when injury time seems to last hours?
Weak teams like West Brom know their time will not come
and they might as well head for the showers!
Teams like Middlesbrough, hardly anyone knows.
Unlike Man U, they’re not widely hated.
And all that remains is the faces and the names
of the players of teams relegated!
The River Thames rolls past some smaller clubs
in London like West Ham and Fulham.
In Birmingham’s steel, Aston Villa reveals
fans who call them “My precious” like Gollum.
And farther below, the Portsmouth team flows
while Southampton, their rivals, they stay down.
And the second-tier clubs seek promotion but flubs
make them wonder why they ever play on!
In a musty old ground in North London they play
far removed from the St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The church bell chimes ‘til it rings 47 times
since Tottenham’s last title procedural!
The legend lives on in every English town
of a game that gets every fan trembly.
If the League gives no chance, they can still send their fans
to the FA Cup Final at Wembley!
