Lead singer Ger Corrigan said –“There is no one Better, he brightens up Saturday afternoons with his wit, charm, natural intelligence and wholly unscripted genius, he creates an atmosphere with Le Tiss, Charlie, Phil. Merse, Alan McAnally ,Kammy and whomever else stands in. It is genuinely funny and his quips and remarks are superb. He is the best on TV bar none and he deserves a song. There is a lot of love in the song. It is all for Jeff. We find ourselves worrying about Hartlepool’s performance eachSaturday. For me however nothing touches his rant about Middlesborough. Brilliant. Guacamole and Mushy Peas, geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenius”.

 

The Brothers believe Hartlepool will ,one day, win the Premier League.

Lyrics

 

That’s Why We Love Jeff Stelling -Corrigan Brothers

 

(words and music Corrigan Brothers 2013)

 

One of his remarks

Gave me such delight

They’ll be dancing on the streets

Of total network solutions tonight

When branston got sent off

He gave us all a tickle

He said that Mr Branston

Would be in a  pickle

 

Daniel agger scored a screamer

Jeff turned to Merse and Matt

A grin across his face

How did AggaDO that

When Jellyman saw red

Playing for Mansfield town

“i hope he doesn’t throw a wobbly”

Brought the house down

 

    Chorus

  

       He’s too cool for school

       And he loves harltepool

       The truth to you i’m telling

       On wet soccer Saturdays

      His brilliant turn of phrase

     That’s why we love Jeff Stelling

(that’s why we love jeff stelling)

 

he went off on one

for Middlesborough’s reputation

the skinny latte drinkers

brought out his frustration

he praised the cleveland hills

and the river tees

they order guacamole

when they want mushy peas

 

 

    

With merse and phil and charlie

He has a laugh with Kammy

And loves a bit of fun

With le tiss and mcanally

They have chemistry

They celebrate the silly

And love to see a goal

From the great David Goolwillie

  

             

        

    Chorus

  

       He’s too cool for school

       And he loves harltepool

       The truth to you i’m telling

       On wet soccer Saturdays

      His brilliant turn of phrase

     That’s why we love Jeff Stelling

(that’s why we love jeff stelling)

 

 

    Chorus

  

       He’s too cool for school

       And he loves harltepool

       The truth to you i’m telling

       On wet soccer Saturdays

      His brilliant turn of phrase

     That’s why we love Jeff Stelling

(that’s why we love jeff stelling)
