Osgood Was Good

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 he was an icon in sun and in rain
the back of The Shed we just sang out his name
great in the air strong on the ground
“Osgood Is Good” that was the sound

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Raquel Welch waving on that old touch-line
Steve McQueen and a bottle of wine
Terence Stamp ‘Hutchie’ the Beatles The Stones
sure is amazing how football’s grown

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 took us into Europe took us to the top
took us up to Wembley saved us from the drop
never won that much did as they please
but they were the Boys of the Seventies

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 still felt the awe when Ossie was around
taking new fans on the Tour Of The Ground
and back in October he was stood by my side
we were watching Bolton getting tanned like a hide

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 still had the power still had the smile
still had charisma still had the style
Kings Road Fulham Road in restaurant and bar
raise your glasses to a true superstar

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Ossie was a legend Ossie was a Blue
Ossie was Chesea through and through
Ossie was the king he was our Best
Osgood Was Good long may he rest



heard the news by text in Stoke..as snow was falling.(.a few memories there for old Blues fans).. as i was looking at a statue of Sir Stanley Matthews outside a shopping centre…shine on Oz
