Haunted...

WRITERS ISLAND PROMPT
TO HAUNT YOU
chitchat – chew the fat
what went wrong at Chelsea?
‘cos they put six past you
now you really know Sven
what It’s like to be a blue
chitter-chatter–chew-chew
I hate to say I told you Sven
but I’ve seen it all before
years ago at Arsenal
we lost by the same score
chitter-chatter-chew-chew
you really need to buy new men
Sven spend spend
chitchat – chew the fat
I’m City ‘til I die! they cry
and to their dying day they’ll say
Sven spend spend
chitter-chatter–chew-chew
chitchat – chew the fat
no matter what you say or do
the blues will come back to haunt you!

  1. Cool rhythm, words and story! Would be fun to sing that - not me, but you! :)

  2. Thanks to Tumblewords and Gautami for the comments and many thanks to everyone who visited this week. It is a difficult one to comment on but for the record: Sven is Sven-Goran Eriksson the manager of my local football (soccer) team Manchester City FC. Chelsea and Arsenal are both London based football clubs, "The blues" refers not just to Chelsea and City who both play in a blue strip, but also to the fact that the memory of this defeat will come back to haunt. "I'm City 'til I die" is a terrace chant stolen from 'I'm H A P P Y'
