Football to Me

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Shankly making the people happy
Mooro pristine in his tackles and kit
Banks of England with his safe pair of hands
Chippy Brady darting over the pitch
Adams as stoical as the house made of bricks
Football to me

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Paisley and friends three cups at their knees
Ferguson’s treble not forgetting Busby
The fallen of Hillsborough the 96 flame
Dalglish a King no other head fits his crown
With Lennon McCartney singing songs at the ground
Football to me

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Boys of Brazil taught the world how to play
The finest the greatest the Beautiful Game
The Angel Diego whose hand bore the stain
But the 2nd goal godly and washed away shame
Rossi on fire Maldini the same
Football to me

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Henry and Zola and Klinsmann makes three
Boots made with miracles Moses agreed
Garrincha Gentile Tardelli and Greaves
Money and madness can never succeed
The passion is priceless and goals flowing free
Football to me.
