The Lyrics

A tribute to Newcastle United soccer star Nolberto Solano
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
And even Mackems say he's pretty fly for a magpie

We've had our share of dodgy South Americans before
They're always on the sick-list and they couldn't bloody score
But this guy's really different, he could win us the cup
And if that were to happen, we never would shut up

He's from Peru, he's scored against Man U
We know this midfielder's a Geordie through and through
Working like a hound on the training ground
He's there all day, he's there all day
Just say "Howay, man" and he'll give you a hand
He's really gonna give his all at Sunderland
Just grab your zebra top and
Hey! Hey! Do the Geordie thing!

(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
And even Mackems say he's pretty fly for a magpie

He plays in a midfield that is constantly on fire
Ol' Monkey Head would kill for guys like him and Kieron Dyer
He's not a primadonna, he'd play seven games a week
Just don't ask anybody if his gran was really Greek

People used to scoff, but now their hats they doff
He gets stuck in there but he doesn't get sent off
Yeah, he keeps his cool, Nolberto ain't no fool
What's not to like, what's not to like?
One Boxing Day, you should have seen him play
Just "MERRY CHRISTMAS NEWCASTLE" was all he had to say
Just grab your zebra top and
Hey! Hey! Do the Geordie thing!

When he gets a direct free-kick, now that he shouldn't miss
He can score from places that really take the piss
They say he's got a good goal-bonus, now that may be all talk
But I'm sure he'll activate it far more often than Dwight Yorke

(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
(How ya doin, Nobby?)OK, OK!
And even Mackems say he's pretty fly for a magpie

He's doing well, as we all can tell
The Toon all love him, even Smoggies think he's swell
Put him through on goal, he ain't no Andy Cole
He'll slot it in, he'll slot it in
Yeah, he takes the shots, we really love him lots
He's a prize asset in our quest for winning pots
So grab your zebra top
Start dancing like you'll never stop
So grab your zebra top and
Hey! Hey! Do the Geordie thing!
