Just Some Robbie That I Used To Know

Just some Robbie I used to know

So RVP will hang up his boots at the end of the season and to most Gooners he is a footnote in Arsenal history. He shoulda choulda been an Arsenal legend, but when push came to shove, the ‘little boy inside’ told him to chase the money and so he did.

RVP kid

This is a bit of a rework of a blog I posted back in 2012, based on ‘Gotye – Somebody I used to know’

And given RVP’s announcements, I thought I’d revisit it and give an update.

Just Some Robbie I Used To Know

Now and then I think of when we were together

Like when you said you’d stay with Arsenal ‘til you die

Said Arsenal was the right place to be

And said we’d never part company

And it was your dream to be here and win the Premier

RVP dream

We stood by you, through all the injuries, through all the sadness

With dedication to the end, right to the end

So when we found out you wanted to jump the fence

After you said you’d stay to the end

We didn’t understand why it was over

And then you went and scurried off

You listened to the ‘boy inside’ like we meant nothing

We know we don’t need your love

But you went to Old Trafford and well that was rough

You didn’t have to stoop that low

Change your friends, change your shirt and then change your number

I guess thats what money does to you though

Now you’re just some Robbie that I used to know

Now you’re just some Robbie that I used to know

Now you’re just some Robbie that I used to know

RVP sad

An injury free season, Cesc left and you made me captain

The boy inside was excited, I said I’d stay to fly high

But then the money was over there

Deep down I didn’t really care

You said I could just go

And you wouldn’t get hung up on some Robbie that you used to know

And then you went and scurried off

You listened to the ‘boy inside’ like we meant nothing

We know we don’t need your love

But you went to Old Trafford and well that was rough

You didn’t have to stoop that low

Change your friends, change your shirt and then change your number

I guess thats what money does to you though

Now you’re just some Robbie that I used to know

Some Robbie (I used to know)

(Some Robbie) Now you’re just some Robbie that I used to know

Some Robbie (I used to know)

(Some Robbie) Now you’re just some Robbie that I used to know

I used to know, that I used to know, I used to know some Robbie
