Watch This Boy

Jack Grealish
Head and shoulders
Seems to me
Powerful calves and thighs
All seeing eyes
Brave and bold and best
You follow me?

He played GAA
In Croke Park
High energy game
Need to make your mark
Channelled into
England’s national game
Irish roots
Definite Brummy bark

I saw him play
At Bolton
In a freeze
Beast from the East
He floated on a breeze
Crossed from right to left
Deft turn on the ice
Hit a shot
The goalie got
But not a save with ease

There are many fine young players
On the rise
Rice and Mason Mount
No surprise
Sako cool customer
Others rising too
And Harry Kane
Well he just knows the game

But Jack is the lad
I’m rooting for
He reads a game
So well and gives his all
A Villa boy it’s true
But there’s Dublin Galway Kerry
In there too
I wish him well
Fine Gael or Fianna Fail
