‘That sounds great to me?’ – A Newcastle United song by Graham Watson

By Leazes with thanks to Benny Hill


“Now if you’re feeling miserable, and if you’re feeling blue,
Here’s a little ditty that’ll help to pull you through,
All your worries will disappear, and the skies will all turn blue:
Just stick your finger in your ear……and sing ting-a-ling-a-loo.


“Ashley says he’s going, and then he says he’s not
Bishop sends the Journalists a scurrying, with talk of sales a lot
It seems there’s something in it, but then there’s usually not.
He just wants to make you happy and that is very nice.
He’s only departing someday but at a extortionate price.


“So if you’re feeling miserable, and if you’re feeling blue,
Here’s a little ditty that’ll help to pull you through,
All the clouds will disappear, the grey skies turn to blue:
Just stick your finger in your ear.…and go ting-a-ling-a-loo.

“The Club might have been a sinking and that isn’t very nice
Players well they cost money well out of our league for price



“Still the Chronicle can speculate with words of comfort and of hope
To give the fans a lift, even if it is a lie, its well within there scope.

“Shearer said “Get your fingers out” and do it ‘bloomin’ quick,
We got our fingers out, but that didn’t do the trick;
So follow your foolish leaders through the torture and the pain:
Be like Jensen, Douglas and Ryder and stick ’em back in again!


“Oh stick your finger in your ear and go ting-a-ling-a-loo,
Your finger in your ear and go ting-a-ling-a-loo,
Remember that we stared this Pub team in 1892
Stick your finger in your ear and go ting… A… Ling… A… Loo
