Every Inch Of The Way

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Alan Ball
Small jokes, he heard ’em all
“You’re not small
You’re just not very tall”
He gave hope to every titch
Who wanted to be out there on that pitch
The ones who thought they’d never get a kick
Or even get picked
He would never give up – and nor did we

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Someone said to me – (and it hurt) –
You won’t make the team, you’re just a little squirt
My mate spoke up
“Alan Balls a little squirt
And he just won the World Cup”

Notes

Thank you Alan Ball – inspiration and magic.
