Geordie was a villian.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Geordie Crump was a villian
Geordie Crump was really hard
Geordie Crump did sliding tackles
In Windy Nook school yard………ouch
But I had too much skill for him
Nutmegged him once or twice
But for making a mug of Geordie
I paid a hefty price.
While waiting for a corner kick
Geordie punched me in the ribs
Then ran his boots right down my shins
I spent a week with Doctor Gibbs.
So I quickly learned my lesson
And to save my looks and pride
I refused to play in school yard games
Unless Geordie was on my side.

Notes

That school yard surface was a mixture of gravel and concrete and despite painful memories, It still beats sitting indoors and playing on X-Boxes and virtual football games.
