The Undertaker

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ray (short for Ramon not Raymond) Wilson
the forgotten hero of ’66
finished his working life
an undertaker

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 it sounds severe
coming out of soccer

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the coffins
embalming
and what have you

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 to stay relaxed
not get emotional
control your feelings
when other people
are getting histrionic
that’s difficult

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but that’s how he played the game
marking space not players
a left-back that played left-back
sometimes not touching the ball for ages
until it entered his own area

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 the soccer player
and the embalmer
united
