England Expects!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s 9th June,
Friday five O’clock,
Germany kicks off against Costa Rica,
To start greatest spectacle,
On earth.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 England will play,
Paraguay tomorrow!
And like the Germans,
Win their opening match,
But four – nil.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The football fans in the ground
Watching in the pub,
Or glued to the telly at home,
Will echo the sentiments of the famous Admiral,
‘England expects that every man will do his duty.’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Most I suspect will be hoping and praying,
This time England can beat the rest,
Like the team of 66,
Bring home the World Cup.
