Drogba: out on a high

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The hero departs
With medal dangling;
A final exit
No more contract wrangling

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Into the sunset
And off he trudges;
He served us well
We bear no grudges

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He loved his finals
He always scored;
We loved his swagger
We always roared

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We’ll miss you Didier
And that’s for certain;
Thanks for that penno
At the final curtain

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 There’ll always be
A place in our hearts;
They hang heavy
As the Drog departs

Dider Drogba, legend

Announced today, Didier leaves on a free transfer
