1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “Dad, can I have a footie shirt?”
Was my impudent request
Times were hard and money short
But he always did his best

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A t-shirt dyed to Liverpool red
And a hand-drawn bird for a crest
The number cut from a blanket
Sewn by Mum with loving zest

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 At the time, I wasn’t happy
I wanted mine like all the rest
But looking back now, I realise
That I had been truly blessed
