Dead and Buried

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They thought we were dead and buried,
Two minutes to go till half-time.
We’re sure we were dead and buried,
But there’s always hope where there’s life.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They thought we were dead and buried,
Two down, not much left on the clock.
We counted ourselves dead and buried,
But then Yerry Mina struck…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He poked the ball into their net,
Raced back to the centre-spot,
And seconds before the ref blew for half-time,
Another goal home did slot.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They thought when we’d made it two-two,
That we’d be content with the draw.
But though down to ten men, when the ninetieth came,
Theo Walcott a third goal scored!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So all football fans just remember,
Two minutes can be enough time,
To come back from the dead, and prove once again,
That there’s always hope where there’s life.
