First came Bielsa Rhapsody, now they present Bucket Man.

That's right, massive Leeds United fans over on the Phat Chants Podcast have recorded a new tribute to manager Marcelo Bielsa following on from the success of the Bielsa Rhapsody.

It comes from the team on the Phat Chants Podcast which includes Britain's Got Talent finalist Micky P Kerr and The Pigeon Detectives' Matt Bowman, among others.

It;'s a take on legend Elton John's 1972 hit single Rocket Man - and it's brilliant!

The full lyrics are here, in case you fancy a sing-along yourselves:

He packed his bags last night, pre-flight

A new tribute to manager Marcelo Bielsa has been recorded following on from the success of the Bielsa Rhapsody.

And he flew from overseas

Yes, he'd been hired

To manage Leeds

I miss the Premier League, I miss European nights

But now we're playing with style and grace

I'm sick and tired of time-wasting teams, playing Leeds

They cannot handle the high press, can they Marcelo?

Don't think it's gunna be a long long time

Until we are promoted, don't resign

You're not the man they think you are at home

El Loco, no

You're the Bucket Man

Bucket Man, turning over teams at Elland Road

You're the type of coach. that gives a chance to kids

In fact they're playing well

You found a way to improve them, yes you did

All the science our players understand

It's just their job five days a week

Oh, Bucket Man

Oh, Bucket Man

From Argentina, yeah

Don't think it's gunna be a long long time

Until we win promotion, don't resign

You're not the man they think you are at home

El Loco, no

You're the Bucket Man

Bucket Man, turning over teams at Elland Road

Don't think it's gunna be a long long time

Until we win promotion, don't resign

You're not the man they think you are at home

El Loco, no

You're the Bucket Man

It has turned out to be a very topical release, too, with the news that this year's John Lewis Christmas ad features Elton John and his first piano. You can watch that advert here.
