Farewell Andy D

Aunty Jack

(Who knew Thin Arthur was a Collingwood fan?)

 

Farewell Andy D,

Soon we’ll be free,

Though you’re 10 feet tall

You don’t scare us at all

You’re big, bold and tough

But you’re not so rough

There’s a scream as he plummets away (‘allo me little luvlies)

 

So remember, you better listen to this song real close coz I’ll tell you what,if you don’t,

I’m gonna jump through your speakers and rip your bloody arms off…and I will too…

Don’t forget it…especially you stupid.

 

He drives a black Merc (I do)

A small working perk (right)

He’s big, round and fat

But don’t dare tell him that (flaming one arm…)

Coz he gets so mean

His nose starts to gleam

There’s a scream as he plummets away (goodbye me little luvlies)

 

 (spoken bridge)

Oh we really really love you

And we think the world about you

Won’t you please come back to our house

Please come back dear Andy D

Now you’ve gone away and left me

Andy D please don’t forget me

Just remember I’ll be waiting

At the gates dear Andy D

Yes I think I must be dreaming

I can hear the fans a screaming

And I know you’re coming near me

Now you’re back dear Andy D (I’m back)

 

Farewell Andy D, (make up your bloody mind)

We know you’ll be back

Though you’re 10 feet tall

You don’t scare us at all (I’ve heard that before)

You’re big, bold and tough

But you’re not so rough

There’s a scream as he plummets away (g’bye me little luvlies)

 

 (spoken over the chorus progression)

I’m really off this time….like a piece of cheese

    Fair bit of truth in the humor Peter personally give me Wayne Jackson any day I feel he would have handled the saga of this last 18 months so much better . There are times to be confrontational to get the best possible outcome at other times retreat and be quiiet .
    More than a touch of , Fonzy from Happy Days can’t say the word wrong . A classic case of some 1 continuing in a role for too long and undoing there own good .
    Overall the average footy fan is happy he is departing I reckon .
    Thanks Peter very quick off the mark or had you been storing this article for the inevitable ?

  2. I’m tempted to post “tell your story walkin’ and don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out”, but then I remember that a good ‘Murdoch Man’ in Kim Williams was voted on to the AFL Commission around about the same time Mr Demetriou was supposed to have told Mikey Fitz he was pulling the pin.

    Did someone say “better the devil you know”?

  3. Exactly. I’m not as ecstatic about the Demetriou news as some… maybe I want to see if the AFL is giving me a gift horse with f***ed up teeth.

    Or better still, David Gallop, come on down

    The man himself no doubt is pointing to economic indicators as evidence of the success of his reign, and these are not to be dismissed.
    However, constant tampering via rule changes, and an unfathomable MRC might suggest a different, toxic legacy. Many argue that our unique, magnificent game is being diluted.
    It’s probably a pre-requisite for the role, but his colossal ego, and galactic lack of humility won’t be missed.

    One way to hold everyone’s interest till Round XXII – start the rumour that the Ayatollah’s retirement might only be a rumour.

    Well put and very funny Peter. A small working perk indeed.
