Rings Round Eddie McCreadie

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I always liked Eddie McCreadie
A tackling wing-back of his day
More refined than Ron Harris, not weedy
He moved in a spidery way

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Most sides had two wingers, quite shifty
The ‘W’ formation – don’t mock it
They were usually skilful and nifty
But most were in fast Eddie’s pocket

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then I went to a game floodlighted
At Stamford Bridge ‘63
A little lad played for United
And went on a footballing spree

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He rang rings round Eddie McCreadie!
Rings and ovals and squares
That skinny wee kid found it easy
Just grinned at Chopper’s hard stares!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 He rang rings round Eddie McCreadie!
The fly put the spider to test
Rang rings round our Eddie McSpeedy!!
His name said it all he was…

Notes

If you can’t figure out what the last word should be & who the skinny kid was, ask your dad!
