I’ve seen lots and lots of great goals
Some scored by greats like Greaves and Law
Bobby Charlton, Ron and Wyn Davies,
and Forests very own, Ian Storey- Moore.
I can recall one scored by a young Gascoigne
He sliced through our defence like a sword
Beating player after player with ease
The whole of the ground stood to applaud.
I’ve been privileged to see other individual ones
And some created by all of the team
But the greatest goal I’ve ever seen?
Was by myself, in a beautiful lucid dream.
I was playing for England against Brazil
The crowd kept roaring out my name
It was the World Cup Final at Wembley
Two all, one minute left in the game.
I tackled and took the ball off Pele
And went on a long and mazy run
It ended with me hitting in the winner
“What a goal”, read the headline in the Sun.
I lifted up the Jules Rimet Trophy
Got carried around the pitch shoulder high
But when Pele said my goal was the greatest
Well, I just fell to my knees to cry.
It’s been said that dreams can come true
And that’s a saying I know to be right
Because that “dream goal” I scored at Wembley
Was Match of the Day’s best ever on Saturday night !
