Munich 1958

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s February 6, 1958
Gloom falls on the doomsday set
3:04 p.m and it’s getting very late
No football fan can ever forget

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Return from a Champions League tie
Clash with Red Star of Belgrade
From Munich Riem they take to the sky
Tragedy rears and offers no aid

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Edwards, Pegg, Whelan, Bent,
Byrne, Colman, Jones, Taylor
Not all lost with the descent
Survive Gregg, Charlton, Viollet, Blanchflower

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Busby’s Babes, these bright stars shine
The pendulum beat of the Munich clock
For European Airways, Flight 609
Old Trafford still beats tick tock

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7
