The Old Boys are Back In Town !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Watching Scholes and Henry on the telly
it was good to see them both back
they’re probably not as fit as they were
but they still know how to finish off an attack.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They say with age comes wisdom
and arthritis, sciatica, and gout,
so let the youngsters run about then
while you take it easy and just chill out.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bobby Charlton is back in training
and Greavsie fancies a comeback as well
Gordon Banks has got his gloves back on
and Man City have had a call from Colin Bell.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Norman Hunter’s been out running and eating raw steak
so he’s playing on Saturday for his beloved Leeds
and turning out for Chelsea is “Chopper” Harris
because he says modern players are wimps and weeds.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So welcome back you Golden Oldies
I hope you all have a really good game
but remember no two footed tackles
and no pushing players with your Zimmer Frame !

You’d think Henry and Scholes were old age pensioners going by all the talk in the media just lately.
So I was inspired by Mark Merriman’s poem to write this,it’s only a bit of fun so I hope I don’t get sued by Age Concern !
