Subject: RE: Lyr Req: help find comic football rhymes/poetry
There is good one on the origins of football. I think it was by Hamish Imlach but I can't remember the title, just a few words.

Concerning two sides at a meal, chasing a lost dumpling

The two sides were green and blue (of course)

'The only thing that wasna' blue was they never blew their nose..'

and

'The thing they weren't 'agreen' on was the sharing o the booze'

and

'There's 11 dumplings on each side & they call it footba' now'
