Oooh, how delightful!
I almost HOPE this is the proper song. Is the tune anything like the
saucepan song, do you know? Minnow, could you possibly check with Diana if
this is the song she meant? I'd love to have a footnote about it. It's just
the sort of silly and useless but utimately fun info that I think could
justify a footnote.

"They think so much about me that they always play without me" might
come from a song. I know a song with a similar phrase, but since I
learned it as a child I don't know whether it is a soccer song or
whether my wording is exactly right. It has a very soccer flavour,
though. It's called "Cosher Bailey".

Ahem.

Here goes.

<Loud joyful tuneless singing in Australia>

Cosher Bailey drove a train
And it was a dreadful strain
For according to its power
Only went 5 miles an hour.
(chorus)
Was you never saw,
Was you never saw,
Was you never saw
Such a funny thing before.

On the night run down from Gower
She reached 18 miles an hour
As she whistled though the station
Boy she startled half the nation.
(chorus)

And his younger brother Keith
He plays scrum back half for Leith
And they think so much about him
That they always play without him.
(chorus)

And his younger sister Anna
She would play the grand piana
She went 'ammer  'ammer 'ammer
Blooming 'ammer 'ammer 'ammer.
(chorus)

</singing>

Oh I enjoyed that  :-)
