Colin Bell – 1946-2021

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I still have my copy of “Colin Bell”
Reluctant hero on the field of play
Kept safe in my cellar in hope
The legend would sign it one day

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Malcom Allison once spoke
Signing City’s midfield kingpin
Nabbed him for a pittance
“An unbelievable bargain”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 There’s a League Cup trophy
Helped City go up
Three times top scorer
And the Cup Winners Cup

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 England caps, the title, FA Cup
A titan with boundless energy
Maestro, king of the Kippax
We pay homage to Nijinsky
