The Iceman

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Named in tribute to Denis law
Dennis Maria Bergkamp, he came he saw
Sublime Arsenal legend, folk hero
Through the high times and the low

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Serving Ajax, Inter and the Gunners with distinction
Out of this world artistry, vision with precision
A class act, in the true sense of the word
Zola, Cantona, Henry, he puts them all to the sword
Never quite conquered a fear of flying
Aviophobia? Would you blame him now for not even trying

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 For a second let’s forget all the twaddle
And reflect on the protégé of Glen Hoddle

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Gunners own Chrissie Waddle?
Proving once and for all, his genius was not a doddle

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Dutch Master, Beavis, Bergy, Iceman screamed the Highbury banners
As the non flying Dutchman took them on a quest of honours
Goal of the month , one, two, three
Poor Nikos Dabizas and Leicester City
Recognition for gracing football so long
He modernised the Premiership and helped make it so strong
It’s a crime he won’t grace the Emirates

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Cometh the hour, cometh the menace
Thanks for proving footballs not tennis
He’ll always be to the normal fan
The Dutch Master, Beavis, Bergy, Iceman
