The Preston Plumber

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the fields of Preston’s Holme Slack
Emerged the king of the English attack
Debut goals wearing a different number
Jinked with Mathews did the Preston plumber

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Three Lions gifted with the goal spree
For England Sir Tom struck thirty
Thirty first handed humbly to Sir Bobby
Even duelled with Yashin the goalie

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Finest artisan was Sir Tom Finney
Mended pipes and fought for his country
Played World Cups in total three
Provoked golden words from Shankly
