  • songfacts ®
  • "What A Referee!" was co-written by Don Pelosi, Jimmy Harper and Jack Meadows. Although sporting songs are by no means uncommon, this one appears to have had a personal inspiration. As well as a songwriter, Meadows also played soccer for Clapton Orient, later Leyton Orient FC. >>
