All Hail Caesar

Majestically he rose above the rest Not the best but the best of the best A one team man for his whole career He graced the Hoops for many a year Honours in football he won by the score And this lion largely inspired the Lisbon roar Undeniably a great leader of men In defeat and victory gracious and even His rivals revered him as a great opponent No triumph of his did they ever resent Captaining Celtic was his crowning glory Lending even more lustre to his sporting story From his humble beginnings in his native Bellshill His growth in stature gave his supporters a thrill Ave atque vale must we now say to this man Whose sporting deeds are without comparison
