Barry Ryan Saves with Ease

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A keeper’s world is full of wonder,
Some are safe, whilst others blunder,
Some react, whilst others freeze,
But Barry Ryan saves with ease.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The forward breaks, the keeper comes,
The mathematician does his sums.
Some use their head, their chest, their knees,
But Barry Ryan saves with ease.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Some practice in all wind and weather,
Trying to block out the leather,
Improving slowly by degrees,
But Barry Ryan saves with ease.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The crosses come, the keeper judges,
Look! The nervy fullback fudges.
Blame it on the swirling breeze,
But Barry Ryan saves with ease.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Fans all proffer their advice,
Vague, or sometimes quite precise,
We’re difficult enough to please,
But Barry Ryan saves with ease.
