The Ghost of The Playground

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I bet he’s with Cloughie
Just keeping it neat
Racing with Matthews
Ball to his feet

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I bet he tells Edwards
“My ball yer clown”
And jinks it past Bremner
Who can’t scythe him down

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I bet he makes Shankly
Just tear out his hair
Then whizzes past Emlyn
Like he isn’t there

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I bet he fools Jinky
With some of his tricks
‘megging Garrincha
With boots full of flicks

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I bet he’s still playing
When day turns to night
The Ghost of the Playground
A wondrous sight.
