Brazil had it in great abundance
Zico, Socrates, Falcao
Samba mad fans in their thousands
Who turned up to cheer the team on to victory
Nothing it seemed could stand in their way, could it?
They were surely… un-stoppable.

Recently back playing again after a two year ban
And selected by pipe smoking coach Enzo Bearzot
To the chagrin of the powerful Italian football press
Scores a hat-trick as Brazil needing only a draw to qualify
Are eliminated by three goals to two.

And Paolo Rossi?
He excels to almost single handily win the World Cup for Italy
And finishes top scorer to boot in a year fans often remember
When they speak of classic football matches
Played on the counter attack
In the style of…. worthy World Champions.
