One of Shankly’s Best

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When we are young, fifty-seven sounds a lot
Fifty-seven pounds, fifty-seven hours, fifty-seven years
But yesterday when I heard a man had died at fifty-seven
I was pretty close to tears

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Emlyn Hughes, one of the greats,
Never failed when put to the test
If there be a Heaven he’s now with his mates
He was one of Shankly’s best
