When I was…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When I was seventeen
It was a very good year,
It was a very good year
For small town clubs
On hard winter nights
We’d train under lights
Upon the village green
When I was seventeen

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When I was twenty one
It was a very good year,
It was a very good year
For city clubs
Who said I had flair
On the ground, in the air
I could pass well and run
When I was twenty one

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When I was thirty five
It was a very good year,
It was a very good year
For lower league clubs
Where pounds and pence means
I’d wash the limousines
That the chairmen would drive
When I was thirty five.

Notes

Well there is another verse in the original but I thought I’d better stop.
