PLEASE RELEASE ME
Please release me, let me go
The joys were few but not the lows
You’ve caused me pain for 60 years
Release me and let me dry these tears.
My love for you’s not what it seems
I did not get to choose my team
But why, oh why, did you choose me?
Release me, cruel mistress, set me free.
To leave the wife I did with ease
To leave my home I found a breeze
But your lapdog I remain
Release me and free me from these chains.
You stole my heart in ‘61
You stole my dreams that have now gone
The pain won’t go; I’ve had my fill
I hate you, lousy Tottenham Hotspur Nil.
We’ll snatch from victory a loss
We Chosen Ones must bear this cross
With Desperation I can cope
What kills me is lousy rotten Hope.

Thankyou for your thoughts, Kevin and MC again. I think Ray Charles must also have been a Spurs fan when he wrote “Take these chains from my heart and set me free”.

Come on. You can release yourself. It's a good parody though 👍
Sorry, I understand. You're emotionally stuck. I've been there about 20 years ago. I will release you!
We have friends in high places. It will be alright. Don't worry. We got you

Rather you than me, JC. But surely it helps make a man what he is to "suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune"? 😋

“Triumph and Disaster” ? My arse, MC. Kipling should have been a Spurs fan. He’d have soon found out different.

A soulful lament for what might have been?
There must be fellow London team/Arsenal fans who feel this
way! Kipling's words about meeting triumph and disaster and treating those two imposters just the same certainly take on
a sporting relevance here.

Thankyou for your condolences, Graham and Uilleam.
If the season had started in January, Graham, we would have been too. And Uilleam - I envy you.

I'm not a footy fan, so life's a little less complicated for me.
Here's a little something to ease your pain John, from the good old days.
