Flowers of Manchester

One cold and bitter Thursday in Munich, Germany

Eight great football stalwarts conceded victory

Eight men will never play again who met destruction there

The flowers of English football, the flowers of Manchester

 

Matt Busby's boys were flying, returning from Belgrade

This great United family, all masters of their trade

The pilots of the aircraft, the skipper Captain Thain

Three times they tried to take off and twice turned back again

 

The third time down the runway disaster followed close

There was slush upon that runway and the aircraft never rose

It ploughed into the marshy ground, it broke, it overturned

And eight of the team were killed as the blazing wreckage burned

 

Roger Byrne and Tommy Taylor who were capped for England's side

And Ireland's Billy Whelan and England's Geoff Bent died

Mark Jones and Eddie Colman, and David Pegg also

They all lost their lives as it ploughed on through the snow

 

Big Duncan he went too with an injury to his brain

And Ireland's brave Jack Blanchflower will never play again

The great Matt Busby lay there, the father of this team

Three long months passed by before he saw his team again

 

The trainer, coach and secretary, and a member of the crew

Also eight sporting journalists who with United flew

And one of them was Big Swifty who we'll ne'er forget

The finest English keeper that ever graced a net

 

Oh England's finest football team, its record truly great

Its proud successes mocked at by a cruel turn of fate

Eight men will never play again who met destruction there

The flowers of English football, the flowers of Manchester

A Broken Plane,

A Broken Dream,

A Broken Heart,

A Broken Team.

No Words Said,

A Silent Wow,

We Loved You Then,

We Love You Now!

Помянем. Помолчим. Вечная память...
