The day history was made.
We sat down, expecting annihilation
what we got was anticipation
Basler strikes from a free kick…
Schmeichel the victim of a cunning nick..
The boys in Red battle on
half time arrives, with no English song.
the Germans are bellowing loud
the Camp Nou is a divided crowd.
Out they come for the second half
again, the Germans are having a laugh
United fans watch in their seats
as their heroes face the foe they must beat
Out come Bayern, all guns blazing
their country’s reputation they are saving
Scholl forces a save, Jancker hits the post
The Reds are lucky not to be pot roast..
Into the 90th minute, the fear of all fears
Some fans are in tears
United win a corner
could this be the final charge?
Becks whips in the corner
Yorke and Schmikes become less shorter
The ball falls to Giggs, he takes a shot
Substitute Sheringham buries the lot
The Bayern players curse
nothing could be worse
It is the ultimate fine
will they play extra time?
Another corner for United
in it goes, underrated
Sheringham to Solskyaer, one almighty scream
this could only be a dream…
No, it’s real alright
the Reds have shown their might
from the jaws of defeat, they snatch victory
and now, it’s treble Glory
Parading the cup around
they celebrate on that hallowed ground
the Germans fell to the late English raid
this was truly the night history was made.
