Don’t Mention the ‘S’ Word

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We must not look any further than Glens,
If we want to continue our quest,
Keep them focussed right there in our lens,
And not think about a team from Roumania.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It will not be an easy assignment,
We will need to deliver our best,
We must show much more class and refinement,
To progress to meet a team from Roumania.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As Longford saw in the Setanta,
The Glens very often impressed.
There’s no way we’ll win at a canter,
To go on and face a team from Roumania.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Our back four must play as a unit,
They’ll surely be put to the test.
A fiddle sings sweet if you tune it,
Dance the polka with a team from Roumania.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And also we’ll need to be lucky,
Oh Lord, let our fortunes be blessed.
Show grace to the strong and the plucky,
And let us meet a team from Roumania.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 At the height of the Protestant season,
We’ll march to the north Belfast nest,
And sure, there is no earthly reason,
Not to march off to a team from Roumania.
