They’re wearing Cricket Pads up in Heaven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “Why are you putting on cricket pads?”
says God to old Saint Pete.
“Cos Norman Hunter’s coming up
and he’s dangerous with his feet.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’ll put him on Cloud number Six
where he can hang his England Caps on pegs
the cloud is already christened as
‘ Norman Bites Yer legs.’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Despite his reputation God,” says Pete
“he’s liked by all the lads,
but I strongly recommend to you
that you put on your cricket pads.”

Notes

Norman Bite your legs Hunter. Known more for his, shall we say, questionable tackling than for the very good footballer he really was.

R.I.P Norman Hunter
