Closing In

We’re closing in, and so we sit on edge of seat,
In the midst of it
On Transfer Deadline Day.
We’re closing in, and so we wait
With baited breath and there we’ll stay,
Until we hear the deal is done,
For our hope and season in the sun.
On Transfer Deadline Day.
We’re closing in and he’s been seen,
On plane from Spain and looking keen,
In local supermarket and
He’s bought a house, we understand.
Oh how he’ll change the team around,
We’re certain to be Wembley-bound,
Because of Deadline Day.
They say he say he is the next big thing,
He’s quick and handy down the wing,
Bigger than Messi, better than any,
Rich in skill and envy of many.
He’s not come here for higher pay,
No, he wants to play, and play.
For us, on Deadline Day.
He’s seen on Sky Sports News in shirt,
And all the rival fans feel hurt,
They’ll say we nicked him, it’s not fair.
And then they’ll say that they don’t care,
Because he’s rubbish anyway.
Hurrah for Transfer Deadline Day.
The players come, the players go,
And Jeff just loves to tell us so.
The net is spread and time is ticking,
Nerves are fraught and keyboards clicking,
Fans awake with hopes and dreams,
Of new messiahs for their teams.
And then next game it’s down to earth,
You see how much your new boy’s worth,
Fifty million squandered and
His strike ends up in the top of the stand.
But you didn’t want him anyway.
And you curse the Transfer Deadline Day.
