Osgood Was Good

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 he was an icon in sun and in rain
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 on that old touch-line
Steve McQueen and a bottle of wine
Terence Stamp the Beatles and Stones
sure is amazing how football’s grown

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

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 still felt the awe with Ossie around
taking new fans on the Tour Of The Ground
back in October he stood by my side
watching Bolton getg 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 restaurant or bar
raise your glasses- a true superstar

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