Bobby Moore – All English hero

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Queen Elizabeth met football royalty
Hair and face scrub amidst the melee
Then lifting the Jules Rimet trophy
Bobby Moore – He swapped shirts with Pele

Geoff Hurst’s boots started to thrill
Wingless wonders stormed Uwe Seeler
At Wembley are words that ring true still:

Bobby Moore, “Gentleman of all time.”
