He took off his socks,
Because he complained he felt hot in 'em.
There was a young player from Crewe
Who seldom found that much to do.
For an hour or so H

Who couldn't play 'cos of his belly
When he ran on the pitch,
He caused a big ditch,

Who played in a black bowler hat.

Who hated to play in the rain.
One day in a muddle
He stepped in a puddle

Who played on the island of Malta.
But his kicks were so long
And the wind was so strong,

It was one of the three,
But it mystifies me,
Which is why I walk round with a frown.

He said, `Well, this season
My boots were of two different sizes.'

So now it's in the pot.
