Quarter of a century ago, a devastating blow
Was dealt us, by a short stocky figure
Evidence proves to this day, he stuck it away
Past Shilton, with the aid of five fingers.

That may well be so and the purists all know
Deigo’s dined on it professionally since
But least we forget when he stuck away the second
World Football proclaimed it’s new Prince.

Terry Butcher? Still trying to catch him
Peter Reid? Trailing in his wake
Terry Fenwick? Dreams he got a tackle in
Steve Hodge? Has Maradona’s shirt as a keepsake.

“Shilton should’ve clobbered the little so and so”
Says Peter Reid, tongue stuck firmly in cheek
On reflection the Maradona of a quarter century ago
Commanded more than a clobbering by Shilton to stop him!
