Rooney, Terry, Gerrard and Young spring to mind but not a word of
Who will be the traditional English scapegoat?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Every form of media, television, radio, and the press
Claims to employ ‘The Big Names’ to predict,
In Euro 2012 which player can make a name for himself?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 All media bosses hoping and waiting
For an incident, when a player could be branded
The traditional English scapegoat?

Hope and pray, an English player will step forwards
In Euro 2012 can make a name for him?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 England finally lift the trophy, the fans dream
But if it turns into nightmare?
Who will be the traditional English scapegoat?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Sweet dream or a nightmare depends
If a brave soul can be found to step forward
In Euro 2012 and make a name for himself?
Or, who will be the traditional English scapegoat?
