Manchester City: On Top of the League!

David JacobsCorrespondent INovember 21, 2011

Missed my parodies? Debatable, I know.

Looking for something different if you haven't seen any before? Here it is!

Set to the tune of 'On Top of the World' by The Carpenters (Lyrics by John Bettis), this parody covers Mancini and loving life at the top of the Premier League table; but it also includes a bit of naivety over the future of the club once the financial rules change.

 

£192m worth of debt doesn't just 'go away' unless you declare yourself bankrupt! 

Picture him walking through a meadow singing this on a day off...

 

I feel full of positivity.
There's a blue moon rising over Man City
I have no idea why
All our games are on Sky
Who would pay to see Vince Komp’ny in 3D?

Everything I want the team to be
Is now coming to fruition just for me
And the reason is clear
Tevez no longer here.
He’s the only mercenary in my team…

I'm on the—top of the league looking—down on United
And the only valid reason I can find
Is the money I found in Sheikh Mansoor's bank account
Cash has put me at the top of the League

 

It's important you all know my name
Now that us and Man United are the same
We’re two teams winning cups
With our profiles up
Being bailed out by charity is our aim.

There are still some wishes on my mind
When this season’s over I hope I can find
That financial fair play is not forced by FA
Or the club’s own death warrant will be signed…

I'm on the—top of the league looking—down on United
And the only valid reason I can find
Is the money I found in Sheikh Mansoor's bank account
Cash has put me at the top of the League

I'm on the—top of the league looking—down on United
And the only valid reason I can find
Is the money I found in Sheikh Mansoor's bank account
Cash has put me at the top of the League
