David Rocastle Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The darling of the North Bank
Gallic charm in a dour team
Stroller nurtured the pearl within
At Anfield he fulfilled his dream

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Capped 14 times for his country
Never on the losing side
A light went out in North London
On the tragic day that he died

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Whilst Adam’s marshalled the bank of England
Rocky provided the flair
With Thomas and Rico personifying industry
He became Charlie George’s heir

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In his thirty third year the maestro fell foul
Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma the expert said
But Rocky’s light transcendended boundaries
Spurs- Gunners divide was one he shred

“A best mate,” said Wrighty
Across the board he was revered
“It’s a massive blow,” said Brighty

Treasured by the kin of football
Cherished by every colleague
Revered by all

To defenders he presented a bouquet
Many mourned the great fellow
Bring on David Rocastle Day
