Puskas

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They talk of his strike rate
It seems impossible to me.
And as I never saw him play
The facts and figures are all I have.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They talk of Wembley in 1953
And how he and Kocsis and Hidegkuti
Taught England a lesson
They didn’t think they needed.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They talk of the European Cup Final
With that famous 7-3.
One of the Whites under the lights
Of Hampden Park.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They talk of the World Cup in 1954.
In the Fritz Walter Weather
And just not fully fit
The biggest prize eludes him.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 They talk…
If they remember you when you’ve lost the World Cup
Then that must mean something…
Maybe winning wasn’t all that important
If still they talk.
