2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Qui est le magicien sur la football pitch
Making more magic
Than l’average witch
Scoring les goals fantastique
Playing les amazing passes
Qui est l’homme pour les soccer masterclasses?
C’est Thierry Henry

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Il est le king de football chic
Oo la la
Tous les jours de la week
Like le plumber
He’ll find le leak
In any defence
Imagine Pele, Maradona
Mais il est French
C’est Thierry Henry

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Il est magnifique
Il est un Gooner
When il finds the net
Je suis over la luna
He’ll spin on a sixpence
Or a Euro
Renowned from Timbuktu to Truro
Via gay Paris
Who can parlez Francais without une French dictionary?
C’est Thierry Henry

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Who avez les tricks
Who avez le pace
Who va va vooms
All over les place
Who makes full backs say “Il vanishe – avec no trace”
And before they know it
Le score is nil-3?
C’est Thierry Henry


I wanted to write a poem on France’s and Englands best player in `Franglais’ – the imaginary language of French and English mixed. It doesn’t matter if you can’t speak French – it WILL still make sense to you!
