WIDOW TWANKEY'S FOOTBALL SONG
You all know Widow Twankey here
In red and white and all.
For she's lately joined the football club,
'Cos she's mad about football.
Every Saturday she's out there
She screams and yells and cheers,
And she'll be their best supporter
For years and years and years.

For she's football crazy, football mad
And a football it has robbed her of
The little bit of sense she had.
She launders all their kit for free
She puts them in the tub,
Since Twankey joined the members of
Peking Football Club!
