More To Life Than Birds?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Where were you in ’66’
Georgie Asparukov and Pak Doo Ik?
I was thirteen years old
In me granda’s house
Lying on the floor
As quite as a mouse

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 What were you up to
Antonio Rattin?
With your spittin and fighting
Requiring Alf to stop the spattin

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Did you see Pele
Wrapped up in a coat?
He’d been bruised and abused
By defenders of no note

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 What were you doing
When Hurst headed it in?
I was lying on the floor
With my hands
Under my chin

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When Kenneth spoke those immortal words
I discovered to my chagrin
That there was
More to life than birds!!!
