This parody is a little serenade for Rafa Benitez during his time of struggle with the club's financial difficulties and its league points deficit which, at the moment, is truly putting the '-poo' into Liverpool. So Benitez, if you're reading this article right now (Divine Power-Willing), I'm only helping you out here.

Tune - 'Hey There, Delilah' by the Plain White Ts - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJOjJDPgtk8

Hey there, Benitez,
What's it like when 'Pool look sh*tty
Without Stevie G and Torres
Being there to make it pretty like they do?
Noone's in deeper sh*t than you.
I swear, it's true.

Hey there, Benitez,
Top-four spots are at a distance.
I'm right here to bring you down to Earth
This song's 'bout realism, close your eyes.
Think of two more months 'till your demise.
You're a bit 'offside'.

Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Need Aquilaniii.

Hey there, Benitez,
I know times are getting hard,
But please believe in more than three key talents,
El Nino and Gerrard and Benayoun.
And you will taste success quite soon.
If not, you're doomed.

Hey there, Benitez,
I've got so much I could say
About your war of words with referees
And Fergie every day, but it's your call.
No one expected that beachball.
We've seen it all.

Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.

A title may seem pretty far
When Man U have Scholes and Evra
You'd buy them both on transfer deadline day.
You might tell us the club went bust.
Then we'll all have a laugh because
You always entertain us in some way.

Benitez, I can promise you
That in this season, it won't be you
Who wins the league. It's no longer the same.
But who's to blame?

Hey there, Benitez,
Make amends to halt your misery.
Two more weeks and Gerrard's back again
To help the team make history like they do.
They'll think it's all because of you.
You can win whatever you want to.
Hey there, Benitez, here's to you.
For seeing it through.

Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Oooooh you need Aquilaniii.
Need Aquilaniii Oooooh.
Oooooh oooooooooh.
Oooooh oooooooooh.
Oooooooooh ooooh.
Ooooh.
