Bill …..

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The final whistle sounds
as the players leave the ground
Fans have all made the way
to journeys homeward bound

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And as the floodlights get switched off
a darkness does desend
But Tottenham does not go to sleep
the history does not end

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The ground is deadly quiet
but a presence still is there
The stands are all so empty
but theres a echo in the air

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It is better to fail aiming high
than to succeed aiming low
The words of a great man
one we all should know

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 His name was Bill Nicholson
he was Tottenham to his core
He loved this famous football club
who’s tops we have all wore

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 He said It’s no use just winning,
we’ve got to win it well.”
a famous line to his players
that sir Bill Nic would tell

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 as a player and a manager
he was dedicated to our team
push and run with Arthur rowe
was Nicholson’s Tottenham dream

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 and with just 1 cap for England
and a goal that he did score
injuries badly plagued him
and for St George he played no more

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 “My duty is to get fit for Tottenham.
Well, they pay my wages you see
words of a true loyal man
not a modern day mercenary

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 but his playing career was over
his future was laid out
he got his life ambition
and his name we all did shout

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 he rewrote the Tottenham history books
with his style and passing play
people wanted to learn
all about the Tottenham way

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 we went on to win the double
in the year of 61
Tottenham hotspur football club’s
new era had begun

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Trophies and glory followed
we had conquered the English game
Then he moved to Europe
to share the new found fame

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 First team to do the double
and first to beat Europe’s elite
Bill had transformed us
to the team they craved to beat

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 He had made the club a world wide name
and history books rewrote
He gave the club the stature
and was famous for a quote

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 And when he left he must have thought
his job he must have done
But he came back for Burkinshaw
and the transformation again begun

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 He scouted for the team he loved
and players he did find
Galvin Mabbut Roberts
are a few that spring to mind

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 He then received the tribute he deserved
for what he had achieved
Club president to the day
we all sadly bereaved

19 Leave a comment on verse 19 0 A dark day at Tottenham
in October 2004
When the great man passed away
a man we all adore

20 Leave a comment on verse 20 0 A legend in his own right
and a true Tottenham great
The day he died the club had mourned
that devastating date

21 Leave a comment on verse 21 0 So when the lights are turned off
the legend’s still alive
He loved the club with passion
it helped the great man thrive

22 Leave a comment on verse 22 0 And as his ashes are scattered
on the turf at White Hart Lane
You have got to show his passion
#when you play the football game

23 Leave a comment on verse 23 0 So every player at Tottenham
remember where you are
Remember when you leave
with big wages and nice car

24 Leave a comment on verse 24 0 You will always be a number
and a name for Spurs to pick
You will never be a legend
like the legend that was Bill Nic ……

25 Leave a comment on verse 25 0 RIP BILL COYS
