Johnny Rumble:
Guinness and West Ham!

Pints of extra stout and dark brown excesses
Vats of drowned rats turned over to strips of pork
I’m clad in my dear claret and blue
My faded and stained jeans, black adidas shoes
Heartache, triumph, and goalless draws
Celebratory drafts of downward flowing bubbles
And we’ll forever be blowing those same ol’ bubbles
Although both Arthur and Bobby are long resting
Their memories are alive right here
Pints of Guinness and West Ham on the telly
It’s a half day off and Boleyn is half a world away
With the lassies wearing claret scarves
Chanting, “Martin One, Geoffrey three
And Bobby got the OBE!”
