ITFC Football '78

Celebrating 42 years since the 1978 FA Cup Final:

Cooper's bright red jersey
Collar coloured black
That Jennings save from Burley
When he popped up from the back

Micky Mills walks up the steps
Lifts the cup, all smiles
Talbot, midfield dynamo
Ran for miles and miles

Allan Hunter, sleeves rolled up
Sneaks a cheeky smoke
Beattie's perm, that Ipswich cap
A legendary bloke

Osborne's left, one-nil to Town
That Otley boy did good
Wark is so unlucky
Two shots against the wood

One hits the bar from Mariner
Another rolls just wide
Geddis takes on the defender
Dips a shoulder, goes outside

Woods fries Rice throughout the game
He's there and then he's gone
Ten minutes left with Osborne off
They send Mick Lambert on

The celebrations justified
For Bobby Robson's winning side
