The Late Great Bobby Moore

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They write of genies on the pitches
‘Next Big Thing’ pinned onto walls
But whilst their boots are blessed with spells
They’re not the boots of
Bobby Moore

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They came as Kopa, Muller, Johnny Rep
Like Cantona they’d charm the ball
Sanchez, Milla, Aldo, Cruyff
But me I came as
Bobby Moore

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They read the words on Jinky Johnstone
Duncan Edwards Busby’s law
Whilst others read the word of God
I would read of
Bobby Moore

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They sang for Peters, Hurst and Stiles
Terrace chants sung by the score
And whilst they sang for those 3 Lions
I would sing for
Bobby Moore

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 They bought the boots of predators
Kenny’s 7 Shankly’s 4
The 10 of Pele not for me
The blessed 6 of
Bobby Moore

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 They spoke of Platini as priceless
Didi held the world enthralled
But when they spoke of Rossi’s brilliance
I would speak of
Bobby Moore

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 They gazed on ZiZou Valderrama
Eto’o’s goals the lens adored
Yet whilst they gaze on Messi’s brilliance
I only have eyes for
Bobby Moore

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Jimmy Dean was cool as Riva
Steve McQueen like Beckham sure
So Frank Sinatra played it cool
But not as cool as
Bobby Moore

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 They dreamed of Klinsmann Batistuta
Baggio a star he soared
And whilst they dreamed sweet dreams of Zico
I will dream of
Bobby Moore



Bobby Moore RIP. Not of an age but for all time.
