Another song for the Babes
There is a plaque at Man United, It's underneath the old main stand, It bears the name of Duncan Edwards, He was the finest in the land. But he died on Munich's runway, Without a tear, without a sound, His strong body battered and broke, As he lay helpless on the ground. From Salford hailed Eddie Colman, He'd been a Red for all his life, For the team he'd played for and supported, Our dear Eddie Colman died. The oldest babe was Roger Byrne, He was the captain of the team, He gave his life for Man United, With his best friend Liam Whelan. But one man survived the aircrash, And he lived to tell the tale, Of the boys who played in Red, For they did not know how to fail. So we'll drink a toast to Matt Busby, And we'll drink one to that team, They were acclaimed the whole world over, They were the finest ever seen.
