The Preston Plumber

Sir Tom Finney - 1922-2014

From the fields of Preston’s Holme Slack
Emerged the king of the English attack
Debut goals wearing a different number
Jinked with Mathews did the Preston plumber

Three Lions gifted with the goal spree
For England Sir Tom struck thirty
Thirty first handed humbly to Sir Bobby
Even duelled with Yashin the goalie

Finest artisan was Sir Tom Finney
Mended pipes and fought for his country
Played World Cups in total three
Provoked golden words from Shankly
