Nice Two Son

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They call him the Greaves of the Orient
He comes from somewhere in Korea
And in defenders in England and Europe
He’s starting to instill mighty fear.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He won’t get the accolades of others
Like Deme Alle or Eriksen the Dane
And he won’t be hero-worshipped by supporters
Like one of their own Harry Kane
But He toyed with the Cherries on Sunday
He’s the man who scored two of the goals
And the fans they all shouted out Nice One
LIke they used to with old Cyril Knowles.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nice One, Nice Two, maybe one day Nice Three
Will be sang when Son scores a goal
And the Greaves of the Orient
Will be revered and loved
In North London and the back streets of Seoul.

Notes

I follow Palace not Spurs but I have to admit that Tottenham are wonderful to watch and their South Korean forward Heung Min- Son has been firing on all cylinders of late.
Now some of you of a certain vintage might remember an advert on telly around about 71 that ended up with the slogan Nice One Cyril. Well Tottenham fans adopted it for their popular left back of the time Cyril Knowles. It was then made into a song that I believe made the charts. It went something like Nice One Cyril Nice One son- Nice one Cyril – let’s ‘ave anuvver one.
