Do They Know It’s Beznisstime?

Now THAT'S depth!

Now THAT’S depth!

A Band-Aid for Christmas

It’s almost that most special time of year for TFC fans both young and old. Lists have been made, wishes offered up – all there is left to do is wait and see what presents we may get!

No I’m not talkin’ about Christmas you greedy so-and-so’s – I’m talkin’ transfer window! That’s right you selfish buggers (unless you asked for TFC to sign a guy named Jesus… or possibly Victor Moses) Christmas is just the teaser for the holiday known as Beznisstime! Put out your allocation cookies as the thin yet jolly policy wonk comes down your chimney (Pervs.) and delivers from his big sack of SuperDraft prospects. The football equivalent of coal.

So join us fans in this heart-warming holiday moment. Raise your scarfs up high and in true 1984 Bananarama fashion – sing along with this Beznisstime holiday classic.


It’s Beznisstime; there’s some need to be afraid

At Beznisstime, our depth is light yet we barely trade

And at our club of plenty, where we still await some joy

Throw your arms up in the air at Beznisstime


We need some players, to play with the other ones

At Beznisstime

It’s hard, and we’re not having fun

There’s a worldwide transfer window

And there are players near and far

Yet the only one that’s moving is Defoe to QPR


And Greg Vanney must just sit there

At the very least til June

Well tonight thank God it’s him instead of you!


And there won’t be Cups at BMO Field this Beznisstime

The greatest gift we’ll get next year are scarves

Oh, where football never flows, future home of The Argos

Will it still be Beznisstime by fall?


Here’s to you, pricey Bud for ev’ry man

Here’s to them, and their latest five year plan

Will it still be Beznisstime by fall?


Fleece the world

Fleece the world


Fleece the world

Let them know it’s Beznisstime

Fleece the world

Let them know it’s Beznisstime

    • Not that Duncan isn’t indeed awesome – this particular bit of TFC related hilarity was composed by Tony. You’ll never sing this the same way again though, will you? 🙂
