The Bard of The Schoolyard

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lost amidst jumpers
And a jumble of clothes
With his trainers all muddy
He’d put on a show

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He was blessed with such lightning
And a thunder of goals
Defenders were battered
With no place to go

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “The Bard of the Schoolyard”
The kids would all sing
Took the ball down like Mooro
And played like a dream

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With a jink to the left
Then a step to the right
With a shimmy of hips
A magical sight

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The driver not looking
“He was drunk” they all said
As he stole the lad’s magic
And left him for dead

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Tho his name isn’t famous
Or written on shirts
A young lad is playing
Where football is first

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 He was Georgie and Pele
He was Muller and Cruyff
The best kid at footy
I saw in my life.
