I couldn't find one either...With some of the more unkown aritists/songs it's harder to find them...I'm not saying it isn't out there, but it may take a lot of looking... Do you have a teacher or friend that could maybe figure the song out and show you?

(For the future, it's a lot easier to understand what you are saying if you use punctuation, such as periods and commas)

(For the mods: I don't see how this thread belongs in the news section, maybe the guitar players forum)

You sure it was Don Fardon? All I ever remember of his was "Indian Reservation"....I do remember - vaguely - the Belfast Boy song - was it on the soundtrack of the film "Best?"

:D :D :D

Yup Vic, It was Don Fardon.

Yup, it was.

Here's the article that answers those. Apparently, the song is to be re-released. This article's from your very own -- BBC. :)

Don Fardon
George Best - The 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
But I knew that I could make you Shine
Cause you moved like a downtown dancer
With your hair hung down like a mane
And your feet played tricks like a juggler
As you weaved to the sound of your name

Georgie, Georgie
They called you The Belfast Boy
Georgie, Georgie
They called you The Belfast Joy
And they said
Georgie, Georgie, keep your feet on the ground
Georgie, Georgie when you listen to the sound
Georgie, Georgie put a light on your name
Play the game boy, play the game

Just play the game the way the ball bounces
And bounce the way the ball plays
Cause you won't have long in the limelight
No, you won't see many days
when you live and you play for United
With your heart and your blood and your soul
You run and you kick and you fight it
And you learn every way to the goal

Georgie, Georgie
They called you The Belfast Boy
Georgie, Georgie
They called you The Belfast Joy
And they said
Georgie, Georgie, keep your feet on the ground
Georgie, Georgie when you listen to the sound
Georgie, Georgie put a light on your name
Play the game boy, play the game

stop...i have found a genius...stop...
