Munich 1958

It's February 6, 1958
Gloom on the doomsday set
3:04 and it's getting so late
Football fans can never forget

Return from a Champions League tie
With Red Star of Belgrade
At Munich Riem they take to the sky
Tragedy rears from the fade

Edwards, Pegg, Whelan, Bent,
Byrne, Colman, Jones, Taylor
Not all lost with the descent
Gregg, Charlton, Viollet, Blanchflower

Busby's Babes, these bright stars shine
The pendulum beat of the Munich clock
For European Airways, Flight 609
Old Trafford still beats tick tock

Number 7
