You might think you can do without him
And yet I put it to you
You’re gonna miss Mike Sheahan when he’s gone

He’s not afraid to have opinions
He’s seen a truckload of football
He takes everything quite seriously
You won’t get a laugh out of Mike
And he asks the questions that need to be asked
And sometimes the ones that don’t

He’s not as issue-driven as Tim Lane
More erudite than Tony Shaw
Not as histrionic as the Bearded One
More cheerful than Patrick Smith
And he’s in the paper every day
With something new to say

He’s the voice of reason and experience
He doesn’t mind stirring the pot
On those panel programmes
He makes more sense than most
And he sits on the couch and moves his head
Like a laughing clown at The Show
