A folk song

Christy Moore managed to catch the game between DCMFC and Bishop St Bhoys during his recent tour. Here he wrote a few verses describing the action...

 

(Sing it in your head like Christy. Think "The Reel and the Flickering Light" or it might not work!)

as i was walk-in up to leafair/ fer the sun-day lunchtime af-fair/
the game had alread-y started/ and they Bhoys they looked downhearted/
the pigeons were perched upon the fence and they looked on the field with a great intense/
as the ba-ll began its journ-ey/ to the Bishop Bhoy's net in earnest/

a young lad by the name of Hazlett/ skipped through the defence and blazed it/
bot-tom corner beckoned/ and past the keeper he sent it/
they cried fer a pen as their forward went down to a challenge by Devine left him sprawled on the ground/
Bish-op's boy he took it/ one a piece as the scoreboard lit up/

Ohhhh here we go/ the goals will flow/
D-C-M on song today/ the Bhoys in green can't get in their way/

now the sec-ond half got started/ Haz-lett was to be martyred/
like a saint the clouds were parted/ a second shot banged in on target/
the Bishop he sobbed as his Bhoys took the blame and 3-1 was the score as their confidence waned/
when Pat Kennedy rose to claim/ the Suits third goal of the game/
a slick pass had them gasp as the game moved fast with the ball swung in for Jimmy Nash to attack/
with a trade-mark header/ even Shearer would not have done better/

Ohhhh here we go/ the goals will flow/
D-C-M on song today/ the Bhoys in green can't get in their way/

so the clock was tick-in down/ seconds left to turn it around/
some space on the edge was found/ and the ball was sent goal bound/
the Greens they cheered as it hit the net but the yellow an blues were not done yet/
a las-t min-ute pen/ had the Bishop's Bhoys down to ten/
up strode McBay with-out delay and he made them pay with the fifth of the day/
the Bis-hop left to pray/ as his Bhoys trooped away from the fray/

ohhhh 5-2 fer the yellow an blues/ a good perfor-mance an the three points too/
those near-by could hear the cry/ "Up da Suits" an they all knew why/

Ohhhh here we go/ the goals will flow/
D-C-M on song today/ the Bhoys in green can't get in their way/
Ohhhh here we go/ the goals will flow/
D-C-M on song today/ the Bhoys in green can't get in their way/
