Ugo Ehiogu 1972-2017

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was at Villa Park
We noticed big Ugo’s frame
At the tender age of forty four
He’s sadly lost to the game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 To partner Paul McGrath
Big Ron shelled forty gee
A snip from the Baggies
For the defensive oak tree

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Three League Cup wins
Big Ugo made his mark
Old Firm winner at Parkhead
England goal at Villa Park

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Merson’s tears told the story
Grief for the lad from Hackney
Honoured in the FA Cup semi
Minutes applause at Wembley

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Leeds, Boro, Blades mourn
Armband kissed by Afobe
Rest now big Ugo
You made so many so happy

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 number7
