“The name’s Bond, James Bond”
That maybe so Mr Connery
When your flashing yer pecs in the flicks
But I can recall, you playing charity football
And a blinder you had t’ween the sticks.
In goal for the showbiz eleven
We stood on the line and admired
A keeper both daring and brazen
And a never say die(sic) kinda guy.
You’d rush from the goal
Clearing your lines
Lambasting inept defenders.
The very same bloke
Who had a great time
Near the ocean with Ursula Andress.
We heard you had trails at United
Then acting put an end to all that
I can see you as stand in for the great Harry Gregg
But goalies wages in those days were cat.
Anyway that’s me tale about Sean Connery
Keeping goal for the showbiz eleven
I can’t remember the score, for the life of me
But it sure wasn’t double 0-7!
