Rivalry (to the tune of ‘Yesterday’)

by Dave Goodwin

 

Rivalry, we can look ahead to round 18

Hawthorn plays a team who are obscene.

Oh, I believe in rivalry.

 

Suddenly, we’re not half the team we used to be

Tim O’Brien’s wearing 23.

Oh, rivalry came suddenly.

 

Why he had to go?

We all know. His salary.

But – wait – nothing’s wrong

Let’s go long to Rioli.

 

Yesterday, we had many ways to kick it through

Now Jack Gunston’s got a job to do.

Oh, I believe in rivalry.

 

Why he had to go?

We all know. His salary.

But we’ll still be strong

Cos we’ve still got Rioli.

 

Rivalry, Lara Bingle’s passing pleasantries

And we pray for Swans insolvency.

Oh, I believe in rivalry.

  1. Brilliant. Do you do requests? I’m thinking of something to the tune of Black Betty……

    Whatsisname played his part , helped in two Flag wins . Will be missed in a way , but on-field success will come without him. Will be interesting to see who plays on him in the rivalry game. I’d put Hodge on him , even though Whatsisname is taller he can’t mark overhead. Great lyrics.
