Song For Tottenham’s Daniel (Levy)

There have been some great songs about Tottenham Hotspur on the web recently, mostly new lyrics added to well-known pop hits. We have been publishing them on HotspurHQ and they have inspired me to have a go.  Seeing Daniel Levy and Gareth Bale flying back and forth to Spain during the summer, I couldn’t resist tampering with this Elton John classic. Lyrics only are in this Hotspur HQ blog but for those of you who play guitar you can find added chords on my blog page at life2too.com.

Daniel (Levy)      Original Lyrics Bernie Taupin, as adjusted here by Alan Hill.

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights following Bale to Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the euros in his eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I’ve never been
Young Bale told Daniel that it’s the best place that he’s ever seen
Oh and he should know, he’s been there enough
When you sell him Daniel, we’ll miss him so much.

(Or, more up to date version)

Now you’ve sold him Daniel, we’ll miss him so much.

Oh Daniel my brother, you are bolder than me
Do you still feel the pain Europa League, for Gareth Bale?
Champions dream had died, do you see more than I?
Daniel’s bought more stars, seen it all on Sky

Oh Daniel my brother, you are bolder than me
Do you still feel the pain Europa League, Villareal
Champions League dream had died, do you see more than I?
Daniel’s bought more stars, seen it all on Sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights following Bale to Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the euros in his eyes
God it looks like Daniel, must be the pound signs in his eyes

    LAMELA’S LAMMENT (to Don’t cry for me Argentina)

    It won’t be easy, settling in
    To the pace of the game over here,
    When compared to the league I have left far behind.

    You won’t believe me,
    All you will see is a classy young imp,
    Wearing the lilywhite shirt,
    That belonged to an overpriced chimp.

    I had to let it happen, I had to move on,
    When I heard that Baldini was back,
    with a sack full of cash for his prodigal son.

    So I chose Tottenham,
    The team with such style,
    I’d fit in the first game,
    Best squad in the Premiership, you’ll find us here at White Hart Lane.

    Don’t cry for me AS Roma,
    The truth is I never loved you,
    All through the good times my magic moments,
    I craved a league with, decent opponents.

    And as for fortune and as for fame,
    I can’t stand that flash mob from Madrid,
    So I’ll settle for fame in a classier way.

    Yes I chose Tottenham,
    To dare is to do,
    will be my pledge this day,
    we know we’re the best in the land,
    we don’t care what other teams say

    Don’t cry for me AS Roma,
    It was Tottenham who done you over,
    The cash is coming, in small instalments,
    Though some’s related, to my performance!

        Was thinking that myself. COYS!
