True Blue

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He started his career down Bolton Way
A tall skinny kid, just wanted to play
Always held on to his boyhood dream
To play for his beloved football team

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Played at the back, solid as a rock
Soon caught the eye of Bruce Rioch
Always a regular in the side
Blocking tackling he’d never hide

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Reputation growing day dy day
The big clubs came, all looking his way
The choices he had, which one to pick
For Europe and glory he signed for Celtic

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Titles and trophies he began to stack
A rock solid no nonsense man at the back
Then illness struck, an illness so vile
He’d fight all the way, that was his style

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Family and friends all gave their support
Along with the club, and friends in the sport
Mandy and the kids kept his spirits high
Sam and Heather the apples of his eye

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Then at last in 2001
He proudly signed for Everton
Through man and boy dreamed of this day
Fit and healthy and ready to play

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Then made captain a dream come true
A big blue heart and blood of blue
A transfer out and straight back in
Not for long only half a season

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Once a blue always a blue
An Everton legend through and through
A glittering career, playing for top clubs
He’s home where he belongs Alan Stubbs

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Tony Stapo 24/8/09
