“Where the heck is Denis Law?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He was flawless
the penalty area is Lawless
Panicking whatever for
“where the heck is Denis Law?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Someone’s supposed to be marking
Captain’s orders are barking
‘Stay tight and mark your man’
can’t see him, is there anyone that can?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He was athletic
fit and by no means cosmetic
Ought to know where
he is with his conspicuous blond hair

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He was mostly
in the six yard box and ghostly
Panicking whatever for
“where the heck is Denis Law?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Never mind the ball
or the centre forward six feet tall
Has Denis found the blind spot?
a foot or two is all he’s got

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Someone’s supposed to be marking
Captain’s orders still barking
‘Stay tight, do we all have our man?
Can’t see him, is there anyone that can?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Have to admit he’s lost
like a sixpence in the frost
Who’s supposed to be marking?
Captain’s orders still barking

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 He was flawless
the penalty area is Lawless
Panicking whatever for
“where the heck is Denis Law?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Ball into the box came in
there’s a roar, such a loud din
Found him; dam it he’s there
with his one arm in the air
