Track Name: Swindon Town
The 92/93 campaign brought you celebration
Hoddle led you to the 2nd Premier League season
but before the champaign had a chance to go flat
he was nicked by Ken Bates & Matthew Harding at Chelsea...and forever a twat.

14th of August '93, started with a loss
then another...and another, then a fourth against lowly Southampton.
Took 16 games before you struck gold,
on the 24th of November when I was 10 and a half years old.

Swindon, Swindon...you fascinated me
Swindon, Oh Swindon...Martin Ling and Fraser Digby
Swindon, yeah Swindon...Jan Fjørtoft and Kevin Horlock
Swindon, I really cared about John Moncur.

93 turned into 94, I remember it quite well
'Things Can Only Get Better' was everywhere...Top Of The Pops
Well, Swindon Town DID improve with back-to-back wins
John Gorman's job was no longer a fear, haunting him.

Swindon, Swindon...you fascinated me
Swindon, Oh Swindon...Martin Ling and Fraser Digby
Swindon, yeah Swindon...Jan Fjørtoft and Kevin Horlock
Swindon, I really cared about John Moncur. x2

Ultimately, the weight of 'The Greatest League In The World' crumbled Swindon, they conceded 100 goals...poor Fraser Digby.
They went down in 94...and again in 95
In my heart their delusion burns bright. Forever.
