Heard the tragic news on the radio
surely this couldn’t be true ?
when I heard how he died
my mood turned sad and blue.
I watched him on Football Focus
he seemed relaxed and in command
just like he was as a footballer
that’s why it’s hard to understand.
I watched him play many times
a player of quality and style
he looked like a true professional
enjoying his football with a smile.
Now the football world is in mourning
and what happened is hard to read
but my sympathies go out to his family
and all the Welsh fans of Gary Speed.
