Scottish Football, Sevco

Sevco’s Midnight Runners


Good Evening.

Regular readers will know that The Clumpany always enjoys a (completely silly) musical interlude. Here is what Dexy’s Midnight Runners might have sung to the tune of ‘Geno’ in a really weird parallel universe. 

Remember folks, it’s just a bit of fun

“Back in 2012 in a pre-tendy club.

Oh, Sevco!

Before Davie King and his war chest guff.

Oh-oh-oh Sevc-o.

On a night when denial didn’t suit the truth.
After the years of flunkin’ and bunkin’ bills.

The biggest hands in the scrum that night.

Just grabbin’ the press and feedin’ all of the hype.

Creditor-paying inspiration, you gave me none.
But you were Charlie the bold one.
A chateau you won.
But now just count your fees.
While we just sal-ute you.
And while you’re being flash.
We like your racehorse too.

That man seized the stage, his circus was spinning a yarn.

Oh Sevco.

This man saw off Bomber, and Sally said “Aye!”.

Oh-oh-oh Sevc-o.

The crowd they all booed you, never chanted your name.
And they knew just like we knew.
Sevco wasn’t the same.
And now it’s all over, Rangers ๏›ซjust aren’t in play.

Brrrr!

You fed me, then fled me, with your ‘bought history’ lies.

Creditor-paying inspiration, you gave me none.
But you were Charlie the bold one.
A chateau you won.
But now just count your fees.
While we just sal-ute you.
And while you’re being flash.
We like your racehorse too.

Oh Sevco, Woh-oh-oh Sevo-o
Oh Sevco, Woh-oh-oh Sevc-o”

With apologies to the legendary Kevin Rowland, here is the glorious original…

Geno – Dexys Midnight Runners

And (although I don’t speak Italian myself, you understand), here is The Clumpany’s favourite Dexys track: This Is What She’s Like.

Finally, should the ‘alternate’ version of ‘Geno’ ever be released as a single, I suggest this as the cover artwork:
