God Bless You Brian

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He suffered not those fools and oafs that mocked his football brain,
The high and mighty of the game said he was insane,
He did it all the Cloughie way, the only way he knew,
He did it cos he loved the game, the players, me and you.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There will never ever be another Brian Clough,
And some will say “thank God for that, one Clough is just enough”,
But we all will miss the anecdotes, the logic and the guile,
The way one look or word could make you run a country mile.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So to the fans of Nottingham, Derby and the rest,
I envy how you shared the presence of the very best,
But spare a thought for the angels, they will have it tough,
From the gifted football genius known as Brian Clough.

Notes

A sad sad day..:(
