1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Rugged and tough as old boots
Fashioned from an iron girder
Bustled Harry Gregg into the net
And the fans yelled bloody murder

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Starring in the Mathews final
Heroic against Austria
Thirty goals on national duty
Epitome of a humble superstar

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 One club man all the way
Shearer with advanced antenna
Goodbye Nat Lofthouse OBE
Farewell and goodnight Vienna

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Number 7
