‘Sir Roger’

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 1 ‘Knighted’ by the Kop, no need of sword.
My boyhood hero, with every goal scored.
On my red jersey, I wore the number 8.
A record maker, a legend, an all time great.
He helped achieve Bill Shankly’s dream.
Part of Ramsey’s World Cup winning team.
On and off the pitch, a well deserved ‘Sir’
Struck a thunderous shot through the air.
One of the greatest players we’ll ever see.
Still my favourite ever Red, if you ask me!
So at number 8 or number 21.
He was my childhood hero, second to none.
His flag, next game will take pride of place.
‘Sir Roger’ a man of skill, a man of grace.
