1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ‘E scored an ‘atrick in’t FA Cup,
In’t Final of ’53.
From 3-1 down t’4-3 up,
T’Pool went on a spree.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 T’Matthews Final, it were called,
Though Stan scored three of four.
Some soccer pundits were appalled
That name went down in lore.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In 91, t’news was stark,
Stan Mortensen were dead.
One wag was quickest off t’mark –
“T’Matthews Death,” ‘e said.
