The Lyrics

A bit of a dig at Manchester City's 'funding' but mainly depicts manager Roberto Mancini having a bit of 'me-time' thinking about his position in the League...
I feel full of positivity.
There's a blue moon rising over Man City
I have no idea why
All our games are on Sky
Who would pay to see Vince Komp’ny in 3D?

Everything I want the team to be
Is now coming to fruition just for me
And the reason is clear
Tevez no longer here.
He’s the only mercenary in my team…


Don't be afraid to sing in an accent either!
I'm on the—top of the league looking—down on United
And the only valid reason I can find
Is the money I found in Sheikh Mansoor's bank account
Cash has put me at the top of the League



It's important you all know my name
Now that us and Man United are the same
We’re two teams winning cups
With our profiles up
Being bailed out by charity is our aim.

There are still some wishes on my mind
When this season’s over I hope I can find
That financial fair play is not forced by FA
Or the club’s own death warrant will be signed…

I'm on the—top of the league looking—down on United
And the only valid reason I can find
Is the money I found in Sheikh Mansoor's bank account
Cash has put me at the top of the League

I'm on the—top of the league looking—down on United
And the only valid reason I can find
Is the money I found in Sheikh Mansoor's bank account
Cash has put me at the top of the League

Not familiar with the subject matter but I'm a Carpenters fan so I liked this.
