I wanna be Rinat Dassayev
Gilmar or Oliver Kahn
Maybe The Cat or The Flying Pig
That courageous German, Trautmann.
Crazy like Petar Borata
Or Lev Yashin decked out in black
Give me the gift of hands like Frank Swift
Or that Spurs giant, Jennings Pat.
Safe as G. Banks of England
Svelte as Wee Willie Foulke
Ron Springett who kept goal at Hillsboro
Or The Great Dane who played with his mouth.
Let me skipper a side like Dino
Have the bravado of a Harry Gregg
Be agile as Tony Macedo
So I’ll never make a Gary Sprake!*
