George Best

Recommended Posts

Is there a chance that Alex Higgins make it a genius/pisshead double by following Best into the saloon bar upstairs in the next 12 months?

Latest news....hes donating his organs ...i wonder how much theyll  get  on ebay for them?

I just hope none of my organs fail in the next few days and need replacing. I don't fancy one of Mr Best's cast-offs.

 

 

And I see Bobby Charlton arrived early to make sure he got first dips on George's barnet.

It's 6:10 am and he's still hanging in there.Certainly making the most of extra time.

And now, the end is here

And so I face the final curtain

My friend, I'll say it clear

I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full

I traveled each and ev'ry highway

And more, much more than this, I did it my way

 

Regrets, I've had a few

But then again, too few to mention

I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway

And more, much more than this, I did it my way

 

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew

But through it all, when there was doubt

I ate it up and spit it out

I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

 

I've loved, I've laughed and cried

I've had my fill, my share of losing

And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that

And may I say, not in a shy way,

"Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way"

 

For what is a man, what has he got?

If not himself, then he has naught

To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels

The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

 

[Lengthy Instrumental :blink: ]

 

Yes, it was my way

And now, the end is near

And so I face the final curtain

You C-word, I'm not a queer

I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full

And each and every highway

And yet, much more than this

I did it my way

 

Regrets I've had a few

But then again, too few to mention

But dig, what I have to do

I'll see it through with no devotion

Of that, take care and just

Be careful along the highway

And more, much more than this

I did it my way

 

There were times,

I'm sure you knew

When there was nothing

f*****g else to do

But through it all,

When there was doubt

I shot it up or kicked it out

I fought the just as before

And did it my way

 

Knocked out in bed last night

I've had my fill, my share of looting

And now, the tears subside

I find it all so amusing

To think, I killed a cat

And may I say, oh no, not their way

But no, no, not me

I did it my way

 

For what is a brat,

What has he got

When he finds out that he cannot

Say the things he truly thinks

But only the words,

Not what he feels

The record shows,

I've got no clothes

And did it my way

George Best's lingering is really becoming annoying now.

I agree. But he'd probably still hang on somehow.

 

People have already started putting down flowers etc so he should just do the decent thing so they can start harvesting his organs.

Why are the media hyping him up as some kind of National Hero? He has been sponging and soaking off the state for too many years to calculate. The only way he could pay for his habit was by constantly selling drunken stories to the press! Will someone hurry up and switch the ventilator off, so we can get back to a normal regime of who's screwing who in the papers.

 

Some other soaks may wish to consider moving on in 2006. Shane MacGowan with a donation of rotting teeth to the Science Musuem? Would Chris Evans do the gentlemanly thing and f.o.? All day opening must present some prime cndidates for 2006?

I call it "Pete Docherty" syndrome. You can bet your life there's a report on the next page penned by some cold, p****d-off hack who's spent the night dragging the streets desperately looking for some sign of the major civil insurrection they have been confidently predicting would arise as soon as 24-hour drinking arrived.

 

The BBC are saying he "close to death". Just how much closer can he get for goodness sake? All those people at his bedside must be making the room very hot. Perhaps they should open a window :P

From the front pages of all the papers I saw today whilst walking the dog, I'd assumed he had died. How long must we put up with this cavalcade of tribute?

 

P.S. Thanks for the Butchers shop gag Guest/'I didn't even have the salmo' I've already used it 3 times!

 

(to the same person. She's getting quite bored now.)

Is there a single national newspaper that doesn't carry a big picture of Besty on the cover today? The Torygraph has a special 12 page souvenir supplement. And unless I'm very much mistaken, he ain't dead yet. No wonder he got so ill, with that crappy doctor who's been pronouncing him moments from death for the past three weeks.

I reckon George will serenely surrender himself to the will of Christ at 1505 hrs today.

 

Anyone else like to have a guess?

I guessed 8:30pm yesterday ... I'd like to change that to 11:30am today.

 

 

Re organ donation:

UK Transplant said: "Generally there are only two illnesses, HIV and CJD, which prevent a person being considered as a donor. There's no automatic reason why a transplanted organ can't be transplanted again."

This whole saga is beginning to remind me of the ridiculous media circus that ensued with Yassir Arafat. :P
