Wonderful, Wonderful, Copenhagen

Standard

I don’t care much for Danish bacon
But I really dig Copenhagen
Your senses are awaken
You can’t be mistaken
You’re in Copenhagen

A race so passionate about football and design
Their ideals totally in keeping with mine

Tivoli gardens, Kongens Nytorv square
and it would be extremely hard
not to fall in love with Hans Christian Andersen Boulevard

A stranger in London, recalled to me once
how much he loved the art in Staten Museum fur Kunst

Native Americans playing panpipes in Stroget
To make the effort to come here I won’t regret

So to finish this ditty
on this splendid city
I’ll try not to make it too long
just leave you with the words of the song
“Wonderful, Wonderful,Copenhagen”
A place in which to belong…

Joey

Standard

Joey Barton is a gifted footballer
and cultured. He has read Nieszche
He defends gay and bi footballers too
and he used to have a column in “The Big Issue”
For what it’s worth, I think Joey is a pretty decent guy
‘Though I cursed him once…you may ask yourself why
I was watching The Manchester Derby from The Stretford End
You equalized for City, yes that day…you were not a friend
But Joey, I have forgiven you
For that goal you scored against Man. U
and I would shake your hand if I met you…

Johnny

Standard

Johnny Hallyday, Johnny Hallyday
Your surname sounds like a holiday
But I doubt very much that your life has always been a picnic
Balancing 2 careers as a singer and film star is a pretty neat trick
Johnny Hallyday: You were great in “The Man On The Train”
You deserve your place in rock ‘n’ roll’s hall of fame
You are an inspiration
A credit to your nation
Johnny Hallyday, Johnny Hallyday
Some would say you’ve had your day
But they would be oh so wrong
for you still breathe new life into classic songs
I’m sure you’ll go down a storm at The Royal Albert Hall
For let it not be said that you never gave it your all
Johnny Hallyday, Johnny Hallyday
Maybe one day they’ll write a play…about you
To be shown in London’s West End or on Broadway
The one and only Johnny Hallyday
A survivor to this very day
Johnny Hallyday, Johnny Hallyday…
