After speaking with me sponsor
Who weighs in with mega-bucks
I’m advised that I’ve a conscience
About the Irish teams bad luck.
It’s a case of straight integrity
That’s what I’m told to say
I did hand-ball it though it wasn’t really me
It was deemed the hand of fate.
I mean can you imagine?
…….. the best a cheat can get
Or if your hands wear….gloves
You’re sure to find the net?
The Bourse could well hit freefall
If I’m confirmed a cheat
Our victory seems petite, trivial
Without dancing in the streets.
No parties near the Eiffel Tower
When the final whistle went
Davide Ginola in our lowest hour
Turned rouge with sheer embarrassment.
Eric Cantona said he chin me
In the papers yesterday
Whilst on Saturday night at a game in Spain
I was pilloried yet again.
Domenech is in another France
Where Charles De Gaulle still reigns
As for Platini and Sepp Blatter
(Both of whom seem in denial)
They’d be dangerous if they’d brains.
At least when back in Londres
I’d Arsene Wenger right behind me
Who in moments of such controversy
Would confirm he couldn’t see!
My agent says “Don’t worry mon ami
You’re the face they’ll wanna bankroll”
I can’t help but wonder why it’s me
The hand of fate helped score that goal?
