Call the Shelbourne doctor

If youíre ill in bed with mumps
and youíre right down in the dumps
cos the Reds are playing but you are feeling sickly,
do not worry, donít despair
for Doctor Frazer will be there
to offer medication very quickly.

With his camera at the ready
and his hand so sure and steady,
small wonder he is called the Shelbourne Santa.
Whether deep in fog in Bantry
or high on a swaying gantry,
the productionís always better than Setanta.

No need to miss your sisterís wedding
in a village outside Reading Ė
the doctor can ensure full satisfaction.
Plug your laptop in the pew
and in a minute, or maybe two,
you can cheer on all the frantic goal-line action.

Up the hills or down the glens,
heíll be watching through his lens
to capture every stunning save from Deano.
And his directionís so sublime
that both Film Magazine and Time
have called him the new Quentin Tarantino.

So if your arteries are thickening
or you feel you may be sickening
or you have to have a wart removed by laser,
donít despair at missing matches Ė
thereíll be regular despatches
courtesy of the brilliant Doctor Frazer.


John Frazer one of Shels unsung heroes videos all Reds games home and away and puts them up on http://vimeo.com/channels/shelstv
