Just for all you fellow Derby fans

Following a great post on the 606 boards with re-worked lyrics for “Common People” by Pulp, I recorded it this afternoon for your delight! for the uninitiated, it’s the tale of a player a team let go for nothing, only for the guy to flourish under their arch-rivals and inflict defeat upon them over, and over, and over again!
Just click on the player to listen!

and here’s the lyrics, courtesy of Addison’s a monster!

He came from Forest with a reputation
for eating pies and never trying too hard
“tub of lard”

One good game out of every seven
Forest fans cried gleefully when he came
And then in four Derbies time they said

We want to live like Commons people
we want to do what ever Commons people do
want to drink like Commons people
want to watch him take games right out of view
what else could i do
I said Ill see what I can do

We took him to the city ground
where Forest fans all said that he’d hide away
on that day
The florest fans said weve got no money
We just laughed and said “your so funny” then we scored
“Cant see any reds smiling”

we said

We want to live like Commons people
we want to do what ever Commons people do
want to drink like Commons people
want to watch him take games right out of view
But they didnt understand
They just cried and left the stands…

Call him Judas all you like
Cos he makes Forest look shi-ite
Should have offered him some more
Cos now its us that see him score
And you’ll never get it right
Cos when your laid in bed at night
watching roaches climb the wall
If you still had Kris he could come and fix it all

You’ll never live like commons people,
you’ll never do what commons people do,
you’ll never cheer like commons people,
we’ll never watch our team slide out of view,
and dance and drink and screw,
because there’s nothing else to do.

He plays on the left he plays on the right
That boy Kris Commons makes forest look shi-ite

Sing along with the Commons people,
sing along and it might just get you through,
laugh along with the Commons people,
laugh along even though they’re laughing at you,
and the stupid things that you do.
Because you think that Trees are cool

Sing along with the Commons people
