Full Lyrics 'Belfast Boy'

When I saw you, you looked like a diamond

As you played in the dust and the grime

Just a boy from the country of Ireland

And I knew I could make you shine

Coz you move like a downtown dancer

With your hair hung down like a mane

And your feet play tricks like a juggler

As you weave to the sound of your name

Georgie, Georgie, they call you the Belfast Boy

Georgie, Georgie, they call you the Belfast Boy

Georgie, Georgie, keep your feet on the ground

Georgie, Georgie, when you listen to the sound

Georgie, Georgie, put a light on your name

Yeah, yeah, yeah, play the game

Play the game, boy, play the game

Just play the way the ball bounces

And bounce the way the ball plays

Coz you won't have long in the limelight

No you won't have many days

When you live and you play for United

With your life and your blood and your soulY

ou run and you kick and you fight it

And you learn every way to the goal

Georgie, Georgie, they call you the Belfast Boy

Georgie, Georgie, they call you the Belfast Joy

And they say Georgie, Georgie, keep your feet on the ground

Georgie, Georgie, when you listen to the sound

Georgie, Georgie, put a light on your name

Yeah, yeah, yeah, play the game

Play the game, boy, play the game

Play the game, yeah, play the game

Whoa play the game, man, play the game

Yeah play the game, now, play the game

Play the game, yeah, play the game
