Graham Taylor – 1944-2017

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lincoln City where it begins
The youngest coach’s rise from shadows
Took Watford and Villa to the brink
And England to the Swedish Euros

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 What a fairytale with the Hornets
FA Cup Final and second in the First
Hornets surged from the Fourth Division
Some things are better unrehearsed

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Gave Barnes, Shearer, Crouch debuts
Served as chairman of the Board
England unbeaten in the first 12 games
Is still set a national record

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Whether it’s Villa Park or Molineux
Sincil Bank or Blundell Park, Grimsby
Only One Graham Taylor shouts loud
All rise Villa Park and Wembley

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 number7
