Half Way

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The pages are turning
The story is continuing
Flick back
Time for some re-writing
Shim Sladey tried to change
the words to Stan
He’s sent him back
See if someone else can
Gordon and Cramb passed through
Now Flash has gone too
He never had a chance
Thrown in, in the first
He was expected to dance
Good luck at The Shay
I hope you find your way

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 At start of this chapter
Excited to be a Mariner
I so wanted something from Reddy
I think I may have been needy
Desperate for a hero not a fullback
Desperate for excitement in attack
But the story goes on
Now with Gritton leading the way
And Reddy at last beginning to play
Read on, plenty more to come
