It's Always Sunny in Wrexham lyrics
You can find the lyrics for the song It’s Always Sunny In Wrexham below:
He ordered a medium doner kebab
Saving a tenner to pay for his cab
Seems no harm in jumping the queue
Showing the owner his latest tattoo
Guy in his forties is rolling a joint
Pleased his team has rescued a point
A wicked deflection in time added on
Can see in his eyes he was totally gone
Less than a mile from the centre of Town
A famous old stadium crumbling down
No one’s invested so much as a penny
Bring on the Deadpool and Rob McElhеnney!
King Street was calm for a Saturday night
Apart from the usual worrying sight
Of zombified corpses parading the streets
Arched over flower beds slumped across seats
Past the bus stop for Moss and Brynteg
Zombie apocalypse modern day plague
A stone’s throw away or a 2 second ride
Wetherspoons locals are smoking outside
Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney
An ocular patdown and thrown in the Gwenny
