Mr Liverpool – Ronnie Moran (1934-2017)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the Reds golden age
Came a local lad called Ronnie
Hailed from nearby Crosby
Fondly nicknamed “Bugsy”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As an apprentice electrician
Ronnie signed for Don Welsh in 52
Played in Joe Fagan’s reserves
Liverpool through and through

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Became a coach in sixty six
A new chapter with Shankly
Twice in the dugout as manager
Proudly led Liverpool out at Wembley

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Forty four cups in the cupboard
There’s so many special dates
A fabled place in the Boot room
And recognition as one of the greats

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Mr Liverpool, tea lady or physio
Bugsy served all the roles
Captain, coach, caretaker manager
Over 300 games, 16 goals

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Home at Anfield for almost fifty years
Red to the core
He was the ultimate utility man
They’re not made like that anymore

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 number7
