Club v. Country

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As an Englishman, I sat
Three lions on my chest
Cheering on my countrymen
In a tough South American test

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Tonight, I saw Mighty England
Not my usual boys in red
But there was something missing
In my heart and in my head

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 For England and St. George
I hope they take the summer prize
But my Liver Bird v. The Lions …
Swoop down and peck their eyes!
