I said, “It’s High Green mate, via Hillsborough please!”


En af mine gode venner, benytter tiden i nordengland til i morgen, at tage en smut forbi Hillsborough.  Det stadion som Sheffield Wednesday kalder hjemmebane og som os Liverpool Supportere forbinder med den tragedie som kostede 96 Kopites livet.  Men det er også det stadion, som Alex Turner på Arctic Monkeys` debut album som fejrer 10 år d. 23  i denne måned, og som vi nok herpå skal fejre, beder blackcap chaufføren om at køre forbi, efter byturen slutter, så han lige kan synet med sig hjem. Man er vel i nordengland!

Det hold min mate får fornøjelsen af se Wednesday tage i mod, er Leeds United. Begge er hold, vi stærkt savner i Englands bedste fodboldrække. Skal nok blive højrisiko festligt!

Ask if we can have six in, if not we’ll have to have 2
You’re coming up our end aren’t you? So I’ll get one with you
Oh won’t he let us have six in? especially not with the food
He coulda just told us no though, he dint have to be rude

You see her in the green dress? She talked to me at the bar
How come its already two pound fifty? We’ve only gone about a yard
Dint ya see she were gorgeous, she was beyond belief
But this lad at the side drinking a Smirnoff ice came and paid for her tropical Reef

And I’m sitting going backwards, and I didn’t want to leave
I said, “It’s High Green mate, via Hillsborough please!”

Well how funny was that sketch earlier, up near that taxi rank
Oh no you will have missed it, think it was when you went to the bank
These two lads squaring up proper shoutin’, ’bout who was next in the queue
The kind of thing that would seem so silly but not when they’ve both had a few

Well calm down temper temper, you shouldn’t get so annoyed
You’re acting like a silly little boy
They wanted to be men and do some fighting in the street
He said no surrender, no chance of retreat

And so why are we in a taxi?
‘Cause I didn’t want to leave
I said “It’s High Green Mate, via Hillsborough please!”

Drunken plots hatched to jump it, ask around are ya sure?
Went for it but the red light was showing
And the red light indicates doors are secured @AlexTurner
