Johan Cruyff

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Farewell Johan Cruyff
You was a prince upon the park
And how you lit those pitches up
Left defences in the dark

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 God bless you Johan Cruyff
You gave us football with some clout
And in the Orange of the Netherlands
You turned defences inside out

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You was a man of principles
And the Catalans adored
The fact you named your son a saint of theirs
And La Masia too was born

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 For Ajax you just bossed the game
Achilles craved your heels
And then upon the global stage
The Kaiser’s crown you almost peeled

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Well in Johan Cruyff
The Lord of Heavens called you home
And tho your faith was total football
God blessed your football soul

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Rest peacefully Johan Cruyff
Your ghost will reign supreme
The finest of Dutch maestros
The phantom reigns as King

What a Footballer, What a Legacy, What a Man. Johan Cruyff RIP.

“There have been four kings of football : Di Stefano Pelé, Cruyff and Maradona.” Former Barcelona coach César Luis Menotti.
