Sir Bobby Robson

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Cancer thinks that it has won
One million pounds may yet prove it wrong
Enthusiasm, humour, courage
Sir Bobby Robson – his name will live on

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Cancer took him in the end
After seventeen years
And five replays
Cancer doesn’t play fair

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Elevated to the upper tier
With no more stairs to climb
Sir Bobby’s Foundation will ensure
Others get to extra time
