Bobby Moore - All English hero

Queen Elizabeth met football royalty
Hair and face scrub amidst the melee
Captain Fantastic lifts the Jules Rimet trophy
Bobby Moore - He swapped shirts with Pele

Lionheart blocked Overath and Beckenbauer
Geoff Hurst's boots started to thrill
Wingless wonders stormed Uwe Seeler
At Wembley are words that ring true still:

"Immaculate footballer", is carve fixed
"Imperial defender" rings a chime
"Immortal hero of 1966"
Bobby Moore, "Gentleman of all time."
