Leonard, don't do France

Postby tinderella » Mon Nov 23, 2009 11:58 pm

There is a war between the rich and poor
a war between les bleus and the green

There is a ban on pain au chocolate for me
there is a pain so hard i can hardly see

Leonard please don't do France next year
Let's drown our sorrows in a glass of beer

Leonard, please detour to your Ireland
There's a law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

:lol:
just a minute, Bernadine.... you're deadly serious aren't you!
I suggest that Leonard tours the country which wins the world cup next year and if France win then he does Ireland instead.... and if England win ...... if England win........good grief, what am I saying????

Bernie

Beautiful poem and very eloquently put. "A bitter night" is what our man Trap said in the interview afterwrards, but your poem is very gracious yet pleading. Love the way you weave in the Leonard lyrics - beautifully HANDled if I may say so....

Pete

Yes she is deadly serious. And what do you mean "if France win"... are you assuming that they are still going to the finals???

Bernie.. Now that I hear it, i don't know why this is not the music being used in all the footage of the event... I must write to RTE and Sky and suggest it because as you know we'll be seeing that videoclip for decades to come... (especially that we are now in recession)

Having bought tickets to France March 2010 myself I was wondering if the chagrin will have healed by then.... Or if I will have to be a conscientious objector, LOL

Pete, how long did it take you to get over the Hand of God? (If ever?)

I can feel your pain. I'm a football fan. You woz robbed.

Damn..... I'd blanked that from my memory and now unleashed the demons from within. My pain is doubled.

Hi Trish and Tinds...

In San Jose I VERY emphatically told Ed Sanders that if Dublin was ever added to the list again, there would be a lot of Americans there! I for one want to experience that marvellous Irish spirit! Marie (IrishMar) was actively campaigning, and it was because of her I made my statement! Leonard loves Ireland and hopefully it WILL happen again!

Fingers crossed.....

ps...if I get enough fans, maybe we can also bring "San Jose" with us :D :D ..the combination could be lethal ;-)

It's not really a matter of life and death is it (I know, it's more important than that)

It needs to be made clear to everyone, that in Ireland there is this massive social event every four years that involves all the citizens in the land, but relies on Ireland qualifying for the world cup.
If it is any consolation, I feel certain LC will tour Ireland and even do Cork (and the new opera house in Wexford - would'nt that be great!)

That's hilarious, Tinderbella.

I know how you feel. I suffer for one whole day each weekend when there are not 3 points on my BVB score and that happens far too often and it is always because of a false or missed whistle by the referee.

Wouldn't it be more than just a sign, if Leonard would add The Law to the setlist in France ?

Trish, please go for that campaign. You both will be national heroes by law. Statues will be raised next to the spear. Boys of fourteen will touch your iron breasts.

Well, thank you all my friends from far and wide, you make me feel a little better now. :)

Just to emphasis to Leonard...............

Now the deal has been dirty
since the match began
so do a detour to Ireland and ease this football fan

Please come back to the Emerald Isle
You're a Paddy at heart, not a Francophile :) :)


Much Love

WOW - this incident really forces the poet in you. I bow my baldy. We Germans once were cheated, too, but I won't go into details because for that I had to go back to 66 and who really wants to go back to 66 ? Well - 66 was not so bad. I saw my first match on TV then in May - BVB playing Liverpool in the European Cup final in Glasgow. The beginning of a love story that lasts til today. Heja BVB.

We have video replay at Cohen concerts - why not in football?

'Takes the human element out of the game'

and

'Would break the flow of the game'

is pure unadulterated bullshit. Look at how much time is lost for 'injuries'

The authorities should be doing everything to ensure that the correct and fair result is obtained. Most other leading sports can accommodate replays - how come football cannot?

Blatter out!....................but I am still going to Lille!

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what do you mean it's only football!!!

Football is passion, football is life

Football means more than a husband or wife

Football and music the perfect pair

Make life so worth living

And there ends my prayer

.................. I am a lousy poet... Please forgive me Leonard :)
