By Cliff Elliot
Anne to me was my Northampton mum.
She’d calm me down when football wasn’t much fun.
But there was a few times, she’d call me and say
Cliff, we have another appointment with the FA
But with Anne by my side, I always knew
My ten game ban would be reduced to two.
She had a voice of reason, with an intelligent sound
One I loved to hear, as it saved me a few pound
Anne’s Rosey cheek smile, will never leave my mind
From Barton to Wittlich, a warmer one you won’t find .
Take the S from her Smile, that’s how far it goes
Especially on your good days , and also your lows.
Life’s about living, so grasp with both hands
Keep smiling don’t waste it, or bury your head in the sands
I’m going to keep smiling, even though I feel sad
I knew Anne, so life’s really not bad .
