“If I had the wings of a sparrow,
And I had the arse of a crow,
I’d fly over Ipswich tomorrow
And shit on the bastards below.
Shit on, shit on, shit on the bastards below, below…”
Sung to the tune of “My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean”, it’s an enjoyable little ditty to chant at a football match, substituting a different football team for Ipswich Town if you prefer. And the sentiment expressed therein holds true. But perhaps it would also be nice to fly over the ocean and watch Craig Anderson, Ozzie Wright and Dion Agius launch giant airs, Russell Bierke and Scott Denis get barrelled off their nuts, whales and dolphins bask at their leisure, and Laird Hamilton do 360s on his SUP; perhaps it would be nice just to soar along the coastline, admire the view, and not shit on anyone at all.
Except perhaps Laird. Thanks to Eyes in the Sky Visuals for the clip.
