I’m hanging up my overcoat
I’m off to have a shave
You’ll find me on the Algarve
Coaching all the waves!
Prada, they will miss me
Matalan as well
Wilkinson Sword have been in touch
With free razor blades and gel!
As blue boys celebrate in style
I wish them a good break
Fifty years is much too long
For a championship win to take!
New players will come and join us
Some of the old guard will have to go
But they have all done well for me
My respect they’ve got, they know!
As sand filters
Between my toes
The thought is sinking in
What a season we have had
Where do I begin?
My team have done me proud this year
All expectations met
The games that we have lost or drawn?
Leave no room for regret!
Next year we will be well prepared
To challenge with the best
But just right now beside the waves
I think I’m due a rest!
