United for Munich

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I sat there watching United 
My eyes glued to the screen
Best Beeb sports docudrama 
I’ve had the good fortune to have seen

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 First division to return to
Hurried victorious from Belgrade
Whims of an ill fated airliner 
23 unfortunate souls all paid

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Charlton spearheaded the charge
Sir Busby fought the bitter sweet pill
Busby Babes, football’s pride 
Youthful exuberance stands still 

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Number 7
