C’Est La Vie, ‘ZZ’

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 If you’d headed the ball, and not the body
You’d be hailed as a goodie, and not a baddie.
Name-calling is wrong, nasty, hurtful – but
You rise above it by winning the match – not
By crude retribution, which was just what was
Wanted by your provocative opponents. They
Triumphed, you blew up; Italy won the World Cup.
