Aintree Gold-always believe in your soul

Thank you for coming home
I’m sorry that the tips are all worn
I left them here I could have sworn
These are my tipping days
Money being eaten away
Just another lay for today
Oh but I’m proud of you, but I’m proud of you
There’s nothing left to make me bet small
Nick Luck has left me standing so tall

Some alternative lyrics for Tony Hadley to sing there after racing this evening at Aintree but I doubt somehow he even knows who Nick Luck is?
