Summer of Sixty Six – Part Seven

Another diversion – forgive me please!

I want to talk about Jimmy Greaves.

Now Jimmy was the man

We learned to rely on

To score England goals

But here’s the diversion

For Greaves had been ill

He’d had hepatitis

Missed most of the season

And couldn’t oblige us.

As the World Cup begins

He was back on the scene

But three games had gone

And no goals for the team.

The whole England team had

Only scored four

And now Greaves was injured

And couldn’t play on

So who would be the chosen one?
