Ossie remembered

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He was my God, my King, my Hero
Now his days on earth number zero
But as a number nine
He was divine
No-one could play him – not even deNiro

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He had that seventies hair and kipper ties
There was no-one better in mine eyes
In every round
He did astound
The brightest star of that glorious FA Cup prize

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He was my God, my Hero, my King
He made my heart zing
I joined the cheers
Throughout the years
And of his pre-eminence we would sing :
