Emperors of Rome

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Big Clem in the sticks a colossus for sure
With Phil Neal and Smithy guarding the door
Joey just punchin’ well over his weight
Keegan dragged Berti all over the place
Cally a prince would he tire? would he hell!
Razor majestic and Em he was swell
Terry Mac played his heart out and shredded his boots
The Gladbach feared Case like a cannon he’d shoot
Steve Heighway pure genius with passion he played
Bob Paisley’s Reds conquered Rome in a day!



(May 25th 1977 Rome) a date etched on the very sleeves of my heart!
