2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Please release me, set me through
For I’ll not falter anymore
To waste another chance would be a sin
Release me and let me score again

Or Aaron or Milner or John Ter-ry
Just get the ball and slot it though to me
And I’ll do the rest, to fill our hearts with glee

To waste another chance would be a sin
Release me and let me score again

Our very lives depend on me
See me finish and banish pain
So please release me and let me score again!

Be a portent
Of what’s to come
For each and every game!

Notes

Apolgies to Engelbert Humperdinck

And a ‘cri de coeur’ to Daisy Goodwin, champion of poetry and prose.


RELEASE ME – 02/03/1967
6 weeks at #1 – 56 weeks on chart

ENGLAND play today all in red, for the first time since 1962.
Apparently, FIFA have dictated certain contrasting kit rules, hence the requirement for red shorts and not the usual white ones.
