The Belfast Boy, a player complete.
Had the football world at both feet.
Art like gift, born to dazzle, to win.
Never again to see the likes of him.
In United Red, in native Irish Green.
The greatest player I’ve ever seen.
Look at the numerous YouTube clips.
Stand amazed at the swivelling hips!
Desperate defenders left in his wake.
Goals of all types to score and make.
On mud bath pitches, still could glide.
Kicked to bits, but never one to hide.
I saw him at Anfield, he left us dazed!
The Kop as one where left amazed.
Memorised by outlandish flair and skill.
Decades on, surely the greatest still.
