Ode To The Special One

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 at risk of winding all in sight
like barking dogs some moon-filled night
an ode I’ll bring in verse and light
of he – The Special One
the Special One – the Special One
three words that make them fume and run
but one thing’s certain as the day
he has no plans to go away
and we’d do well to just enjoy
the freshness and the ruthless joy
that words of hate cannot destroy
the cheek to challenge all

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 a winnning streak charisma – sleek
the master-mind of spin
through inspiration application
inner strength anticipation
he’s wound up football’s little nation
with this the gift to win

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 a throne long bored of domination
with no place for hesitation
but moods of helpless resignation
that sweep through Northern heights –
whilst young pretenders on the block
take prisoners without taking stock
of seconds ticking on the clock
to herald in the change
the long established mighty three
relinquish their monopoly
the King’s Road peacocks fly so free
how football can be strange

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 the air of calm tranquility
that hides the sheer ability
with glares that hold humilty
behind those eyes I’ll vow
the man arrived to much disdain
and never once received acclaim
except from those who loved the game
and followed Chelsea wind and rain
who swell with passion now

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but here for all antiquity
success un-ruled by history
no fortune large can guarantee
the trophies sought they say
the Special One – the Special One
three words that make them fume and run
calm down calm down the time has come
no words a man can say
will halt this tale – this quest and fun
his journey here has just begun
and one thing’s certain as the day
he has no plans to go away
he’s just the Special One
