Still, they talk of him
In the paper shops and match day pubs
Still, they talk of him

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A spindly looking young fella
Who tore yer team apart
Then and only then you knew
What you’d seen seen was art

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Chopper thought he had him
It was but a dream
He tantalized us then chastized us
On that field of green

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 At Craven Cottage one Boxing Day morning
I saw and wanted more
Of what was then the best on show
Charlton, Best and Law

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As I sat on a strangers shoulders
So I could see the match
The beauty of such stars on show
Was simply where its at

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 As a generation grew in confidance
Then lets its hair grow long
We took to taking new idols
Through football, films and song

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 No more short back and sides for us
We changed the way we dressed
We wanted to be just like he
The beautiful George Best

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 In the betting shops and workmans clubs
Still, they talk of him
In the paper shops and match day pubs
Still, they talk of him
