Sinatra sings out the fives

"Our way"

As the fives hit the climax of an incredible season, old blue eyes, Sinatra himself, rewrites a classic

When I was seventeen, it was a very good year
It was a very good year, for hockey tours
And drinking at night
With no ID in sight
In bars with the boys
When I was seventeen

no no no its not that one.
lets try this

doo doo dooby doo, doo doo dooby doo, doo doo dooby doo
doooo
Start spreading the news
Fives are winning today
They beat those standing in the way
Black heath Black heath

no no no its not that one either.

now to make this work better it needs a bit of participation. So dust off the vinyl, wack in the CD or do the download thingie and sing along
Sinatra now sings the new version of My Way

one two, one two three four

And now, the end is near
And so we faced, our final push back
Burnt Ash, stood in the way
Unbeaten run, they'd try to hijack

We played, a season full
Some golden goals, some scored the hard way
And some were saved, but not always
Fives did it our way

Now draws, we've had a few
But then again, to few to mention
We did, what we had to do
Each man stood tall, without exemption

And to the game, we started well
We ran and passed, and in a good way
And by half time, we were three up
Fives did it our way

But we got lax, just like before
They broke the back, and managed to score
But our heads stayed high, there was no doubt
We pressed the D, and made it count
And scored more goals, to win the tie
Fives did it our way

Mul van eee, man of the match
But Harry's goal, it kept us talking
And then Matt, a goal did snatch
First for the club, two years in waiting

To think, we did all that
And may I say, in such a fun way
Oh no, oh no not us
Fives did it our way

For what is a team, what have they got
If you're a five, you've won the lot
To play the way, they truly feel
To not bow down, to never kneel
And the record shows, new champs arose
Fives did it our way

Yes it was our way


And so the curtain falls on what can only be described as a monumental season. Unbeaten. Champions of Div2. Blackheath team of the year !!!!!! There is just too much to say, too many memories, too much emotion.
To each and everyone of you. Thank you.
Wow.
Lets do it again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
