A Match Made In Heaven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A shining light went out today.
Bright defiant light that lost its way.
Heavenly imp, touched by angels.
Blessed are we who saw him play.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Red and blue, Orange and Green.
All colours are blended by tears.
United now in loss and regret,
For so many wasted years.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Dream of every would-be star.
Much the best we’d ever seen.
We shall not think of you as dead.
You’ve just been capped for Heaven’s team.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Think of the line-up of that team!
Matthews, Violet and the rest.
What great games can be imagined
Now they can select the best.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 No sad lament to bring him home,
Its ‘Belfast Boy’ the angels sing.
A heavenly chorus joins the chant,
Now Georgie Best is on the wing.


My tribute to George Best
