By Paul Montague aka The Spotter.
A contemporary take on an old number (to the tune of the song: The legend of Davy Crockett).
From out of Paddington, central Sydney.
Came to fame in Twenty-20.
Mentored by captain Clarkey.
But more aggro than an angry flea.
Davey, Davey Warner, pugnacious prat of the SCG.
T’was 2013 that Davey rose.
And punched little Joey Root on the nose.
Not content with such a blow.
He ventured to Pretoria and reached a new low.
Davey, Davey Warner, filthier manners than a crow.
Came the Indians and M. Singh-Dhoni.
“Respect for Hughesy, that’s the only”.
But lay into Sharma with his cronies.
And showed he’s really quite the phoney.
Davey, Davey Warner, thee so full of damn baloney.
