Allez les Rouges

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lifted from the depths of despair
On we went with moments to spare
That fabulous night, none to compare
Gave hope that it could be our year

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Tension mounted in the evening air
Allez les Rouges, Allez les Verts
Then he burst through with not a care
Held his nerve, answered the prayer

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Celebrated wildly in the neon glare
A club’s defining moment, right there
Our journey’s end? Then unaware
Hail Super-Sub with the flame red hair
