2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “They think it’s all …….. done and dusted”
John Motson, with a new spin on an old cliché
The Argentine jinx, finally busted
And wildly celebrated, twixt Highbury and The Shay

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And lets not be forgetting
All the loyal supporters, good and true
That follow, from beyond the Football League’s setting
In Spartan surroundings, from Blythe, down to the Looe

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ***

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Beckham scores
the crowd roars
from Lands End to …
well, maybe not John O’Groats
there’ll be very few, if any, turncoats
beyond Hadrian’s Wall
but southwards, lovers of the round ball
will rejoice
with one voice
as England beat Argentina
our spirits ever keener
as we enjoy ourselves, celebrate and have fun
confidence mounting, as our hopes soar, in the land of the Rising Sun

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Spain, win again
we should not feign
surprise
for their eyes
are on the big prize
