A Song For Chris Smalling’s Roma Return

New, comments

Are you ready for some Blink-182, boys and girls?

Roma fought tooth and nail to bring back Chris Smalling. Months of speculation, rumors, yes or no, love and hate, loan or no loan, dances with Manchester United; it all ended in dramatic fashion with a lastminute transfer on Monday. And I mean REALLY last minute. After the deadline we still didn’t know if it all went through.

Smalling to AS Roma will probably go down in history as one of the club’s most long-lasting, lengthy, enduring, yet satisfying transfer episodes ever. But hey, finally we welcome back Chris with open arms and how else can we celebrate then with a bit of Blink-182 (One eight two? One eighty-two?), one of the best rock bands of my childhood ever. Here we go.

(Awesome intro)

I love Smalling

True quality, he brings

I’ll take him back

Last year, best trip

Always, I know

Chris will be on show

Tackling, sliding

Whole world will be praising

Say it ain’t so, JJ will not go

Don’t turn United off, carry Chris home

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Monday night, Fienga on the phone

Woodward sucks, I know

He left Guido waiting by the stairs

Surprised he doesn’t know Roma cares

Say it ain’t so, Fazio will not go

Ed, please don’t sign off, carry Chris home

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Say it ain’t so, Pastore will not go

Don’t write the transfer off, carry Chris home

Guido, keep your head still, Smalling will be your thrill

This move will go on, take the red pill

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Na na na na Na na na na Na na

Say it ain’t so, Pau will not go

To Roma he’ll fly off, carry Chris home

A destiny he must fulfill, so Fienga just chill

This move will go on, this move will go on

Just pay the damn bill!
