The Aldo Shuffle (2)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Forget about Ali and his famous on the ropes tricks
The shimmy of Matthews and Finneys flicks
You can keep Roberto Carlos and his banana free kicks
Ronaldo’s fancy step overs are just for kids
Pele was a diamond with his boots of pure gold
But nothing shone as bright as a shuffle from Aldo!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Larsson for the Celtic never lost his eye for goal
Maradona scored with his hand because God told him so
Cantona a legend but his days are done and gone
Once a blue always a manc proclaimed a lad from Goodison
The Premierships is hyped up with the likes of Duff and Cole
Cos nothing thrilled the SWA like a shuffle from Aldo!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Cruyff was total football and his name is on a turn
Di Stefano the master from him the rest would learn
Just Fontaine was magic and he would score his goals for fun
Paolo Rossi won redemption and had defences on the run
Humey looks the part but he has a long long way to go
If he wants to win the crowd like a shuffle from Aldo!
