Season Odes 2011-12

Sat Jul 09, 2011 2:34 pm

As long as there's a free breath in my body, I will make my odes heard.

This season's rubbish:

Ode to Kevan Hurst
"Kev Hurst Signed, Other Day Down Our Place"
(Performed by Roberta Flack; Lyrics by King Crimson)

To the tune of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"


Kev Hurst signed, other day down our place
Welcome Kevan to The Banks's side
And the joy you'll bring will make us sigh
And drop our Balti pies, my boy,
And drop our Balti pies.

Kev Hurst signed, read it on UTS
And saw all the posters' hopes renewed
Like the day we knew we were staying up
And the Daggers went down, my boy
The Daggers went down.

Kev Hurst signed, can't wait to see you play
We'll cheer you on home and away
And even the boo-boys will sing your praise
From kick off to stoppage time, my boy
From kick off to stoppage time.

[Repeat song until George Michael, Leona Lewis and numerous other dregs ruin it.]

Ode to Claude Gnakpa
(Music: Traditional Lyrics: King Crimson)


I signed from the Hatters when we didn’t go up
But scored a final winner against Wrexham in the cup
I played under Money in the Blue Square league
“Can play much higher” he said and I believe

Cheer me, both home and away
“Super Claude Gnakpa”, you’ll say
And on the wing you’ll see me play
And we’ll be promoted by the start of May


With awe and wonder you will see my flair
With tricks that cause the people to stare
With two good feet and not bad with my head
Opposing defenders wished they’d stayed in bed

Cheer me, both home and away
“Super Claude Gnakpa”, you’ll say
And on the wing you’ll see me play
And we’ll be promoted by the start of May


[Repeat chorus until Michael Flatley hires you for Broadway]
