I actually had to brush off a tear as i read that poem and others ........Pause for a while and a tale i'll relate
of a team that we justly had cause to call great.
A long time may lapse err we see such a team
for busby just skimmed all the top of the cream.
In england and europe yes world football too
these youngsters knew what precisely to do.
No bragging or boasting just on with the game
the best and the rest will remember their name.
Remember them well and honour them too
reflect on the glory they brought home to you.
Byrne Jones Colman Taylor Pegg Whelan Edwards and Bent
how could they all know their lives had been spent
Crickmer Curry and Whalley the gent.
Who would work day and night on defeat to prevent
can you forget them? Well brother just try
and then brush away the tear from your eye
the good lord above must have made a decree
i need you in heaven for eternity.
And somewhere above they watch as they say
United we were and United we stay.
no matter for now what the future may hold
your exploits are legion United the bold.
The world shall remember as each one of us
the greatest team ever the team that was
And someday perhaps on the old trafford ground
if we listen with care we may hear a strange sound.
As from up in the clouds with pride you look down
and see the new babes wearing your own triple crown.
