1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ‘Mullery, all you have to do, is get hold of the ball
Then give it to Bobby Charlton, nothing else, thats all’

Although he’s an international, he can be pretty dim
‘Tell me, boss, I’m at a loss to know just what to do?’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘The reason your giving the ball to Bobby’ says Alf
‘He’s a better footballer than you!!!’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 peace.



This is a true story that I heard Mullery telling in an interview.

Although the language was a little more colourful!

Alf was very frank if you’ll excuse the pun.
