Hughie Curran Hung High In The Air

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 All eyes were looking
as the game slowly got cooking
‘prodding an’ a pressing’
defensively undressing

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Building an attack
from the wing, right left or back
what happened next was in the centre
‘heart of the ode’ I shall now enter

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It was a début
that made you feel the passion
something extraordinary may happen
it was a début,
was it a wet and rainy day début?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Time stopped for a second or two
when Hugh,
Hughie Curran sprung
when Hugh,
Hughie Curran hung high in the air

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Defying gravity did Hughie
is there a cavity where he is climbing?
perhaps impeccable good timing
when Hugh,
Hughie Curran sprung
when Hugh,
Hughie Curran hung high in the air

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And he could shoot
the feisty Scot, had a shot
in his trusty left boot,
renowned for hitting the net
five Scots caps he went on to get

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Carstairs born, Hugh from South Lanarkshire
and if you read this Hugh,
from me to you
so pleased you played here

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 I was at your début
your Wolverhampton Wanderers début
it was your début,
was it a wet and rainy day début?

Hugh Curran, a hero in the making.
