Ciao Gian-Franco Zola!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As sure as we are champions
Zola should be King
Of Sardinia or England
Or anywhere he’s been
Napoli or Parma
Azzuri oh so Blue
King Franco we applaud you
Just because you’re you!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Never tackling dirty
Never feigned a foul
Never argued with the referee
Never started rows!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His integrity and sincerity
He would not compromise
Spoke a lovely kind of cockney
Well taught by Dennis Wise!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A dead ball master for us all
To watch and learn so much
Awesome change of direction
With such a classy touch!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Oh Franco will we ever see
The likes of you again?
Just shows you how a role model
And his career can be sustained

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Ciao Gian-Franco Zola
Thanks for all the fun
All I can say on this sad day
You’re an eighteen carat diamond son!

Notes

There are no words to express the way true Blues feel on this day.

Nevin and Zola A Rhapsody In Blue!

But a master should go out at the top and that is what he’s done so fair play to the little man with the big grin!

Arrivederci Gian-Franco Zola and why was he not in the honours list?

peace.

kev.
