La La La La La

You know football sometimes reminds me of the school playground.

For example:

"Make friends make friends never never break friends" was the chant we used to seal a reunion after a squabble. I can see Jose and Roman now with their little fingers interlinked swearing their future allegiance to each other.

Then there is:

"Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clement's", ringing the peal to celebrate the Foxes latest signing and likely Captain.

There is the tale of the Derby fan who tried to scrounge a Pukka Pie on the way to the match;

Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair;
Said Simple Simon to the pieman "Let me taste your ware"

Said the pieman to Simple Simon "Show me first your penny"

Said Simple Simon to the pieman "Sir I have not any"

And of course the Ken Bates anthem:

There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile

He brought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse

And they all lived together in a little crooked house

For David Beckham:

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

And finally just for me:

Georgie Porgie pudding and pie
Kissed the boys and made them cry
When the girls came out to play
Georgie Porgie ran away
