Heaven Struck By Thunderbolt (R.I.P Peter Lorimer)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The strike of a thunderbolt blasts past Heaven’s Gates
and God says to Jack Charlton
“‘ere’s one of your mates,
I know Trevor and Norman
will be both happy too,”
as he nods to Saint Peter
to let Lorimer through.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “There’s a place for you Peter
out there on that wing.
Now be easy with your shooting
cos your shots don’t ‘arf sting.”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So he met with his Leeds team- mates
and they reminisced of the past
as Revie watched proudly
at Peter having a blast.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So Rest in Peace to the Scotsman
with the right foot of power
that terrified free kick walls
and made goalkeepers cower.
