Nicko Dear

to the tune of New Frontier

Fifty-two years on this day
But still on his way
To golf without care
Or fly in the air
His great McBrain smile
Damn good all time

Eating at Toff’s when in Blighty
Who says he’s not mighty?
Denies that he’s good?
Dislikes his ‘kin nose?
Not tired to jump, too young to stop

Unrelenting, forever laughing
Taking pics, and shaking our hands
Always signing, always answering
Questions asked by the fans

Here goes our Nicko dear
Playing drums without mercy without fear
Creates a beat, lights a spark within our soul
He’s a worthy bloke, a star for God and man

He wants to make his life known, and he does know how
Recites it again, his diaries remain
The spawn of this man
Delight for the fan!

Unrelenting, forever laughing
Taking pics, and shaking our hands
Always signing, always answering
Questions asked by the fans

Here goes our Nicko dear
Playing drums without mercy without fear
Creates a beat, lights a spark within our soul
He’s a worthy bloke, a star for God and man
He’s a worthy bloke, a star for God and man
