Football in Heaven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I dreamt there was a match in heaven
down on the pitch shone angelic light,
I saw great players of the past
Tom Finney on the left,Matthews on the right.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 In one team was Ferenc Puskas
the one and only mighty magyar,
he let go a tremendous shot
but Bert Williams tipped it over the bar.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bobby Robson was still a manager
he shouted instructions from the sideline,
and I spotted West Broms Jeff Astle
on his back was the number nine.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I looked on and there was Eusebio
and he was being tackled by Bobby Moore,
and Georgie Best dribbled and crossed
for Peter Osgood to head and score.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When I awoke from my awesome dream
I was satisfied that footballers never really die,
they just continue to weave their magic
but on heavenly pitches in the sky.



As Tom Finney has just passed away it brought to my mind other great players who are no longer with us.This is just my way in saying thanks for all the pleasure you gave us football fans.
