Oops wrong Fred!

Not a match this time but a piece by our music correspondent from 3.09.09. Might give you a laugh!

Stand Up for the Saracens" is the song the club hopes that all those who follow it will be singing following the announcement that 90s pop legends Right Said Fred joined forces with the team to record a version to be played at matches starting this season. I bet you're wondering how Richard and Fred Fairbrass got the job? Well, in true Bernard Cribbins style, can reveal all.

To this tune:


“Right” said Ed, “We need a song for Sarries,

Who d'you think we’ll get in for the gig?”

Tried Van Halen, even tried The Shamen, we was getting nowhere

And so, we, had a cup of tea and


“Right” said Ed, “give a shout to Fairbrass”,

Up comes Fairbrass to Old Albanians

“Need a song an’ not a very long ‘un, we are getting nowhere!”

And so, we, had a cup of tea and


Fairbrass had a think and he thought we’d ought to call up Debbie Harry

For Stand Up for The Sarries - but it did no good (well I never thought it would!)


“Right” said Ed, “Blondie’s not a goer, any others you could recommend?”

Called McCartney, he was at a party, should have got back to us, but no!

So Ed said “Let's ‘ave another cup of tea”, and we said "right-oh!"


“Right” said Ed, what about a combo? Coldplay, Kiss, Police or Motley Crue?"

All too stuffy, so we called up Duffy, and it got us nowhere

And so, we, had a cup of tea and


“Right” said Ed, we’ll have to use a player, trouble is that none of ‘em can sing”

Sorrell, Farrell, Jackson, Wyles and Barrell, we was getting nowhere

And so, we, had a cup of tea and


Fairbrass had a think and he said “Look Ed, I've got a sort of feeling

Which I think needs revealing,

With a drink or two we can sing it, me and you...”


“Right!” said Ed, mic’d up in studio, when his headphones gave a mighty wail

Was he in pain, with static on the brain, it knocked him right off of the refrain

So Right Said Fred recorded the CD

And then we went home!


[Spoken, fading out...]

I said to Fairbrass we'll just have to put “I’m Too Sexy” on the B-side, that's all.

You see the trouble with Ed is, he's too hasty.

Now you never get nowhere if you're too hasty...


PS. the "wrong" Ed in the picture between Fred (left) and Richard Fairbrass  is former Ferrari Forumula One driver Eddie Irvine.

How did I miss this first time round?


Successful hills are here to stay
Everything must be this way
Gentle streets where people play
Welcome to the Soft Parade

Sorry Sarrie

A musical low point for the club although there aren't many to compare or as Sinead O'Connor would say..... oh let's not go there!
