Welcome to Harry Hornet’s Parade

Click above to have this read by a nice American fellow who doesn’t quite get it

I’ve had some great times watching Watford FC at Vicarage Road and elsewhere. Never, though, when I took my daughter along…

When I was
A young boy
My father
He took me into Watford
To see the Hornets play

He said
"Son when
You grow up
Will you take
Your daughter into Watford 
To see the Hornets play?"

He said "Will you
Depress her, Your daughter
And all the Vic'rage Roaders 
With goals that we let in?

Because each time
You go there
With Alice
The Hornets will be rubbish 
You'll never see them win"

(to the tune of “Welcome to the Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance)

  1. Your father, bless his soul, seems to have an overly jaundiced view of the ‘Orns future prospects. Of course there are plenty of disappointing games, but from my own experiences real ‘highs’ are more than adequate compensation taken over the long-term.
    Peaks and troughs – elation and despair, that’s the reality.

    1. Thanks, you’re quite right of course. I’ve added a qualification at the beginning. My daughter has just been very unlucky in that respect – alas, much more of the despair than the elation!
