The singer (ha ha!) was a man called Paul Gascoigne, affectionately known as Gazza (generally by those who were too lazy or retarded to pronounce his last name). For a brief moment in time, he was of the most gifted soccer players England ever produced. Then, he went batpoop crazy, became an alcoholic, beat up his wife, went to a mental hospital and will go down in history as one of those athletes who had the world at his feet and threw it all away.
This is a song (ha ha again!) called "Fog On The Tyne". Apparently there was an original version but I'm too mentally scarred by this one to seek it out.
