King Eric

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You stood before us like a god,
A king upon this earth.
Your skills were always memorable,
On the hallowed turf.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You came to us and on your shirt,
You wore the number seven.
And every single goal you scored,
I’m sure was sent from heaven.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You gave us inspiration,
When we seemed down and out.
A certain spark of brilliance
Would make us cheer and shout.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Your presence was sheer magical,
A pleasure to observe.
When things got tough you stuck around,
You really kept your nerve.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You really are a legend,
A hero and a friend.
From Scoreboard End and Paddock
To the mighty Stretford End.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So King Eric we sing your name,
You’ll hear it from afar.
Who’s that god that walked amongst us,
The Mighty Cantona.



Always been a big fan of King Eric
