The Mighty Jock Dodds

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In nineteen thirtynine, he came to Blackpool
he made us invincible, before wages ruled
what price for this striker, in the World Cup today
The Mighty Jock Dodds, scoring home and away

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When war was declared, and the G.I.’s all came
we were top of the first, and we’d won every game
for Blackpool and Scotland, the play still went on
the Mighty Jock Dodds, like a diamond he shone

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With hatricks galore, and three goals so fast
the record books show, there’s no one surpassed
a hatrick at Hampden, with the Saltire unfurled
The Mighty Jock Dodds, was king of the world

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Stars of today, will soon have gone by
stars of the past, are stars in the sky
shining through time, if our hero was here
The Mighty Jock Dodds, would be Player of the Year

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 There was Matthews and Morty, when legends were seen
there was Hampson and Doherty, Suddick and Green
there was Perry and Mudie, against all the odds
but the greatest of all, was The Mighty Jock Dodds
