A Fairytale of St. James Park

2 years ago

Welcome to ‘A Fairytale of St. James Park’ (with apologies to Greg Lake)

Hope you enjoy…

I wish for a Happy Christmas

I wish for a good New Year

For all our pain and heartache

Just to simply disappear


I remember one night in Bambu

When he bought drinks and wore the shirt

He brought back our favoured Messiah

And then treated him like dirt


He’d sold us a dream of the top flight of football

He’d said he was one of us

We’d believed he’d get us titles

But then he threw us under a bus


He ousted our beloved Kevin

Who was forced to go to court

Then came Kinnear and Wise

Who wouldn’t work with Mort


We had three wise monkeys with Llambias now on board

They couldn’t manage the team between them

And not enough goals were scored

That dream he sold us

That dream of the top flight

Became a nightmare ten years of every hurt in sight


So what I wish for Christmas and for the coming year

Is that Rafa will stay here and the way is clear

For an honest owner to come and help us out

As our faith and passion is never in doubt


We believed in Chairman Ashley a long time ago

We’ve now seen through his lies and ego

We’ve now seen through his financial cheats

We know that united we can be

And we’ll be hard to beat

So come on let’s rejoice together

And make this Christmas the one we deserve
