Murray Walker Absolutely Fantastic

Murray Walker Absolutely Fantastic

Murray Walker - Fantastic Absolutely Incredible

When Murray speaks

The world listens

Spot on

He sometimes misses

Always impressive

Incomprehensible.

But I liked it best when Murray said:

Fantastic,

Yeah, I liked it best when Murray said:

Fantastic,

Yeah, I liked it best when Murray said:

Fantastic,

Absolutely, absolutely,

Absolutely incredible.

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Faan, fan, faan-tastic,

Ab-so-lut-ely- incredible.

When Murray speaks

(Fantastic),

It don’t take him long

(Fantastic),

To make a prophecy that turns out wrong

(Oh Yeah)

He makes mistakes and he’ll confess

"Excuse me, while I interrupt myself".

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Oh my goodness, oh

Fantastic, absolutely incredible.

Murray speaks to the world (Oh yeah)

He reads the race for us.

Anything can happen in grand prix racing

And it usually does

And that’s...

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely, absolutely

Absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Fantastic, absolutely incredible

Faan, faan, faaan-tastic,

Ab-so-lut-ely- incredible.

Fantastic

His voice will last for ever more

Fantastic

If it doesn’t it oughta

Fantastic

Driver’s names he’ll sometimes slaughter

Incredible

Murray Walker - muddily talker

His voice will last for ever more,

Fantastic

He’s fantastic, absolutely incredible

"I want to say so much more than I have time for"

We’ll miss Murray, and I quote:

“I have to stop now, because I‘ve got a lump in my throat”.
