Sixty years have come and gone and still we feel the pain
The loss of 8 brave men in our hearts they will remain
That fateful day in Munich
We never will forget
The Pride of English Football
The Flowers of Manchester

Like a Phoenix from the ashes, United rose once more
Matt Busby built a dynasty with Charlton,Best and Law
They won the League the FA Cup
But still they had to wait
For the biggest prize eluded them till 1968

Tears flowed at Wembley Stadium
The emotion was so great
As a tribute to the lads who died in ’58
Taylor, Byrne and Edwards – the greatest of them all
Were smiling down from Heaven as Busby’s men stood tall

Bad times they were to follow
And the Reds began to slide
But the spirit of the Babes was always there inside
The title, now the Premiership, was soon to be their goal
Then a man called Alex Ferguson signed Pallister,Keane and Cole

Another lull in fortunes, 2 managers would come and go
But then came the special one Jose Mourinho
He vowed to take us to the top
With football played with flair
But the greatest of them all
Are still beyond compare

Each February we meet up at Old Trafford to remember those who died Learn more
