Fire Sale by Matt Couper
Now we’re in a period of stagnation
like no other club across this nation
Apart from Rochdale who spent 78 seasons in league two
What about Crewe? their success has been few
And Swindon and Bradford were Premier too
But no, 6 promotions and 1 relegation in twenty years isn’t enough
And I can hear the rebukes and I can hear the rebuff
Let’s sell the club, we’ll be a success.
Who is buying league two, who has that excess?
How much should we sell for to our mystery buyer
A million or two, you’re thinking much higher.
What would they want for the money they invest?
The players, the staff, the ground and the rest
Who will you turn to if things go wrong?
If we go on a bad run, told not to sing that song
If they take away your access, your pies and your beer
Change the kit colour and don’t shed a tear
Will you form a committee and make a complaint?
But who will listen to the demands that your make with restraint?
Before you chase this wonderful bliss
Just hope that your dreams don’t turn to piss
Yes it’s not good to lose at home or away
But this club’s amazing and I want it to stay
With players we can meet after the game
If we sell up now it just won’t be the same
In case you’re thinking that I want relegation
No I don’t and I want a different formation!
So come you dons let’s turn it around
For the supporters who shout and sing in our ground.
