A Newcastle United supporter has recorded a cover of John Lennon’s anti-war song Give Peace a Chance called Give Bruce a Chance in support of the club’s new manager.

New music dropping very soon. A reworking (ruining) of a John Lennon classic. All proceeds going to the @nufcfoodbank. It will be a free download, but you will be able to pay what you like and it will directly help people who need it #Hungerdoesntwearclubcolours #givebruceachance pic.twitter.com/ftIGc4wRC8

Steve Bruce was appointed to replace the departing and well-liked Rafael Benítez for the 2019/20 season, to the dismay of many fans.

Singer Paulie Belta describes himself as “Newcastle’s number one writer of Geordie parody songs” and the “3rd fastest human beatboxer in Gateshead”.

I've ruined a John Lennon song with my latest parody. I don't think he would mind though, because all of the money raised is going to help people who need a hand. Please share it far and wide. It's a free download, but please pay what you can. All proceeds to @nufcfoodbank #NUFC https://t.co/Yrf3h5w1dF

Everybody’s taalkin’ aboot Ashleys and dafties and gadgies,
Radgies smashing the pasties.
Cynicism, cataclysms. Spread it on yer toast!!!

All we are saying, is give Bruce a chance (x2)

Everybody’s taalkin’ aboot finishers, like Lineker
Tactics and hat-tricks.
Divvies on twitter with bad eyes: it’s not nice!
Bye-bye! Whey Aye!!!

All we are saying, is give Bruce a chance (x2)

Let iz tell yi noo
Everybody’s taalkin’ aboot Rafalution, darn tootin’
Cancellations, lack of patience, relegations, resignations
Celebrations, bargain basements,
Congratulations!

All we are saying, is give Bruce a chance (x2)

Everybody’s taalkin’ aboot Sean and Matty,
Jonjo Shelvey, Joelinton, Paul Dummett, Isaac Hayden,
Matt Ritchie, Atsu, Andy Carroll, Allan Saint Max,
