image for Bob Dylan's Ode To Dundee United Fans

Bob Dylan's ode to the insipid travelling support that follow Dundee United.

"Hey, Mr. Tangerine Man - Have a moan to me

I'm an armchair fan, there is no place

I'm going to

Hey Mr. Tangerine Man - have a moan to me

For on match days I will not be following you

Take me for a trip with your travelling support

Of bodies you're well short

Even with free transport

Your loyalty can't even be bought

The mighty Dee support is always dwarfing you

I'm not ready to go anywhere

Wouldn't be seen there dead

I'd rather stay in bed

Wouldn't watch them from the Shed

You must be off your head

I'm not ready to go anywhere

Hey Mr. Tangerine Man - have a moan to me

I'm still laughing at the places you're going to.

Take me disappearing into the George Fox

Deader than a coffin box

You could wait a lifetime for something to happen

You just sit there and applaud politely, terrified to shout

Too much noise and you'll be out

Lucky if you hear the sound of one hand clappin'.

I know Eddie Thompson's empire has returned unto sand

At Mini Eddie's hand

Didn't go the way he planned

From Dundee he'll be banned

By the critics he's been panned

The money's been well tanned

Hey, Mr. Tangerine Man - Have a moan to me

In the coming season I'll not be following you ".
