Nobby Stiles, RIP

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 That cheeky toothless grin
That enormous will to win
Was the foundation stone

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 That famous jaunty jig
That doughty heart so big
Made the German’s groan

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But United we stand
All (virtually) hand in hand
To acknowledge your passing

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So easy to detect
Our love and respect
As absolute and everlasting

Notes

Some of us had the pleasure to watch you live after ’66.
Even our ‘Chopper’ bowed before you. Respect.

R.I.P. Norbert Stiles. (1942 – 2020)
