I was blown away, stood watching
When the wee man flicked it in
As were the Norwich City squad
Finest trick they’d ever seen.
They couldn’t quite believe it
Should they clap or cry out loud
As “Did you just see what that small bloke did?”
Went racing through the crowd.
Worth the entrance fee alone
Worth the journey up
Worth being there, not stuck indoors at home
Worth exiting the cup?
Of all the clever flicks I’ve ever seen
This one takes first prize
Performed in open play on a field of green
As us fans stood mesmerized.
No keepy up type circus tricks
Or juggling the ball for fun
Just a sweet caress to a corner kick
And a goal scored on the run.
You could watch such a thing forever
Till the cows come home, in fact
It was George Best’s night at Wembley,
Or Charlie George flat on his back.
On the journey home, we chewed the cud
On what it was, we’d seen
Did we give a sod for “The Hand of God”
When Gian-Franco’s in our team?
