A Class Above

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 you were a class above the rest
down there in the rain –
emotions running wild on that touchline
grey hair smooth dapper
aching for victory – feeling the game
dignity and loyalty
through and through

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 always old school
young smile passion and heart
coursing through your veins
Ipswich days
Barcelona nights
a young José at your side
learning the ropes
from the master

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 England penalty shoot outs
leaving tears and sadness
etched into your face
but always the dignity in defeat

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I always felt you never grew up
a child and gentleman all in one
we will miss you
Sir Bobby
your smile..gone
and you
like some schoolroom
in heaven
filled with lost footballing stars…
always
a class above..

Sir Boby Robson ..RIP
