George Best

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 George Best was an artist of a footballer who’s canvas was the grass,
For there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do with the ball and with a shimmy of his hips he’d put defenders on their ass,
He was perhaps the most gifted player of all time yes georgie had it all,
For he was a genius a maverick and a legend he was that and so much more.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 he was born in belfast on 22nd may 1946 and made his utd debut in 1963,
And it was against the albion that this teenager terrorised their defence for the special 1 had arrived for everyone to see,
The swinging 60’s were in full flow and with his film star looks he didnt seem out of place,
Couple that with his charm and he was a beacon for every journalist as he filled columns of newspaper space.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He was European player of the year in 1968 when utd were the 1st English side to win the European cup
But it wasnt just what he did it was the way that he did it that made the football world sit up
I guess George played and lived life in the fast lane it may have been his downfall but he was different from the rest
Oh if only he could have gone past nightclubs like he could defenders but that was Georgie Best.

He was to either put the Atlantic ocean in a bucket or stop George drinking, gambling and womenising that choice was up to him,
He paused for a moment, thought about it, how bigs the bucket? he replied it seemed the easier of the two,
for no one could ever change bestie, if scores of females including a string of miss worlds couldn’t how could me or you.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Many believed George Best wasted his talent in fact a porter once said to him, Mr Best where did it all go wrong,
The fact was George attained so much more than others during his shortened career and it was a joy to watch when bestie was on song,
Perhaps he could of gone on for longer however he didn’t but what he gave us was special and never to be forgot,
For this boy from belfast maywell of been touched by the devil but he was blessed by God because he gave George Best the lot.
