Martin Peters R.I.P.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tall and elegant of posture
With a warm, endearing smile
He’d materialize into the box
In his own enduring style

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Everywhere he went
As Hammer, Spur, Canary
He was every fan’s favourite
Ghosting past the unwary

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Sir Alf famously quoted
“He’s Ten years ahead of his time”
And in 1966
We gloriously caught him in his prime

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And so we remember with fondness
As we sadly chant his name
Condolences to his family
For a true Gentleman of the Game
