He might have played for the Villa
Yes, for Wolves and Coventry too,
But our Big Cyrille
Was Albion through and through.
Scything though defences
Like a lumberjack through trees,
Along with Cunningham and Batson
He was one-third of the Three Degrees!
Oh, how we’d love another like him!
How we need another King!
If we had another Cyrille
Then you’d hear the Hawthorns sing!
But there’s no sign of a saviour
To resurrect our flagging team,
So I’ll carry on regardless
Holding tight onto my dream.
