Old Big Ead

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You were in our lives for years
Once you turned up on our door
We shared the joy, we shared the tears
We couldn’t have asked for more

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You had the power to change things
It didn’t take too long
And just a few years later
They were all singing our song

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They thought we couldn’t do it
But we showed them that we could
Twice you gave us the big one
Amongst the giants we stood

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Nobody seemed to like us
We didn’t seem to care
For we were the big boys, the top dogs
We’d done it fair and square

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 They all wanted to beat us now
But hard as they all tried
None of them could get past us
You gave us so much pride

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 You left us far too early
A legend, we all said
For you were Nottingham’s finest
We’ll miss you, Old Big ‘Ead
