The Perfect Goal

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The football pitch of childhood
The emerald park so green
That keeps our memories wrapped in
The pages of our dreams

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When hours of endless summers
Fused the colours from a box
And paled the rainbows pastels
To break down childhood’s locks

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When Georgie Boy was flying
As his mother cheered her son
And Bobby Moore immaculate
As golden as the sun

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Oh Dalglish turning angles
As Sir Bob he turned to smile
Shook the open hand of Shankly
Full of Merseypride

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But no one saw me running
With my hair wild streaming free
Down the wings of that old schoolyard
From the corners of a dream

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The ball was like a dancer
Touched my toes and led me on
Through the shadows of remembrance
Down time’s corridors we run

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Just like Pele poised immortal
From my Esso coins of old
Banks of England looted
As I scored the perfect goal.
