Munich 58, 56 years ago. Twenty three people lost their lives, including eight Manchester United players.

[Lyrics] Munich Air Disaster 1958 – Morrissey

We love them
We mourn for them
Unlucky boys of Red

I wish I’d gone down
Gone down with them
To where Mother Nature makes their bed

We miss them
Every night we kiss them
Their faces fixed in our heads

I wish I’d gone down
Gone down with them
To where Mother Nature makes their bed

They can’t hurt you
Their style will never desert you
Because they’re all safely dead

I wish I’d gone down
Gone down with them
To where Mother Nature makes their bed
