We will remember

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 My father used to tell me
How things used to be
When players were real men
As I sat upon his knee

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Finney, Matthews, Milburn
Were spoken of in awe
But special praise was given
For a team that are no more

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Matt Busby and his Babes
Are spirits in the sky
They were cruelly taken from us
When their plane failed to fly

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Eddie ‘Snake Hips’ Colman
A dapper little lad
One outrageous dummy
Made opponents mad

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The greatest of them all fell
Upon that fateful night
The mighty Duncan Edwards
Lost his gallant fight

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 My father often told me
That they were boys against men
But Busbys boys were victors
Again and again and again

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 8 men perished in Munich
Tall and strong and fine
How good could those lads have become?
The greatest of all time?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So when we think of 68
Or Treble winning years
Think of those who didn’t return
Through a cloudy veil of tears

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 We never will forget them
We’ll hang our heads and cry
The legend of the Busby Babes
Will never ever die
