Another Reason I love Arsenal

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Reserves or youths game, I’m not quite sure
We just went to see the boys
Not many people turned up there
Cold and frosty, not much noise

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ray Kennedy was soon to be married,
That was the word round about
An old dear ambled unhurried
Towards Ray near the Gunners’ dugout

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “Don’t forget to come round after!”
Her cockney voice carried far
And I heard a ripple of laughter
As he called out, “Okay, Ma”.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Charley George was there, and, I think, Kelly
It was still half an hour till the start
I’ve often seen THEM since, on the Tele
But SHE found a place in my heart.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Didn’t look like a woman with money
But she said; “Don’t forget, come inside.
I’ve got a little something for you.
For you and your lovely young bride.”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Not a thing from that game can I summon
Not a pass or a goal can I find
But a memory of that kind-hearted woman
Is forever ingrained in my mind.
