Now I'm Sixty Four: a musical tribute to Arsène Wenger

To mark the occasion of  Arsène Wenger’s 64th birthday (with apologies to Sir Paul McCartney)

Arsène Wenger has turned 64
Arsène Wenger has turned 64

Since I’ve got older, the last trophy
Was eight long years from now
I hope that you’re saying ‘Give him time’,
Blaming injuries, excusing my whines

If we had come up with FFP
Many years before
Would we still have Roman or Man City
Now I’m sixty-four?

We’ll buy Suarez too
And if you say the word
40 mill plus two

Eight games played and we’re top of the league
Now that Fergie’s gone.
From Jack to Santi to Giroud to Jack
Total football is coming back

Passing the ball, beating AVB,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, (I could go to PSG),
Now I’m sixty-four

Every summer we can buy a big name
Real Madrid don’t need (even if he’s dear)
Ivan: scrimp and save

Mesut Özil signed for me
Higuain wasn’t so brave

Pat Rice has gone, now Steve Bould is here
I’m still in control
Sir Chips will tell me how long I will stay
But don't think I'm going away

Give me a contract, fill in the form
Three more years or four?
You know you still need me, (I signed Ramsey)
Now I’m sixty-four
