Default Lyrics

Goodbye to the Belfast Boy
Words & Music by Cracked Flag. Copyright (c) 2004. All rights reserved.

From the Belfast streets came a gangling lad not much but skin and bone
But Anne and Dickie's eldest son made the beautiful game his own
George had talent in spades, unbelievable skill and a genuine lion's heart
With a passion for the game and how aptly named he was the master of his art
Now my my my all the crowds form the Kop to the Reebok singing
bye bye bye - sweet Georgie boy bye bye
My my my from the Stretford End to the great Tune Army
Bye bye bye - goodbye to the Belfast boy

Not much impressed by the best of the rest George laid waste to them all
Defences cracked and crumbled with El Beatle on the ball
To stop him they must break him but GB won't go down
Soon the ball's in the net and it's Harris and Webb who are littering the ground
Now my my my all the crowds form the Kop to the Reebok singing
bye bye bye - sweet Georgie boy bye bye
My my my from the Stretford End to the great Tune Army
Bye bye bye - goodbye to the Belfast boy

Now the brightest stars burn fastest only feint ones linger on
And after ten years of sheer magic George's playing days were done
And now he's gone forgive us older folk if we recall
Not only was George Best he was the bestest of them all
Now my my my all the crowds form the Kop to the Reebok singing
bye bye bye - sweet Georgie boy bye bye
My my my from the Stretford End to the great Tune Army
Bye bye bye - goodbye to the Belfast boy

George leaves our world a sadder place but the legend will live on
He tore the beautiful game off the racing page and nailed it on page one
Damn all those who demeaned you - I wish I could have been you
I'm the better to have seen you - thanks for the memories
Now my my my all the crowds form the Kop to the Reebok singing
bye bye bye - sweet Georgie boy bye bye
My my my from the Stretford End to the great Tune Army
Bye bye bye - goodbye to the Belfast boy
