The Return of Frank Haffey

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sometimes when I’m lowdown
Sometimes when I’m not happy
I turn my back on this world
And think I’m Frank Haffey.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 How can I look you in the face
When I’m synonymous with national disgrace?
Somehow I got out of here alive –
Signed for Sydney Budapest in 1965.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jimmy Greaves is haunting my dreams
Still cry when I hear God Save the Queen
Think of the good times in between
Mind on that header by Gordon McQueen?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We could run off somewhere new
Needn’t be Argentina or Peru
Just far enough for Johnny Haynes
Not to come looking for me and you.
