singing Unite Unite Europe

and what potential
Ally McCoist
Alan McInally
Gary McAllister
Alex McLeish
Gary Gillespie
Stuart McCall

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Their decisive match with Brazil
such bitter disapointment
Brazil already qualified scored that goal …paradoxical
and Scotland’s great team had to leave the tournament
Everywhere the song which celebrated  Europe was heard
Unite Unite Europe
At home in Scotland watching
the Italy 1990 World Cup
people wanted the Scotland Team
to stay as long as it was possible at the tournament
What the lost generation
Ally McCoist
Alan McInally
Gary McAllister
Gary Gillespie
Paul McStay
Alex McLeish
Stuart McCall

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Italy was sunny
and Ireland did well with
Jackie Charlton’s Army

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 England had the epic and heartbreaking
But I think of  that 1990 Scotland team
forgotten by history
Three decades have gone by
What do we have now…
In which world are we living ?But the early 90’s
that promising time and the start
of the decade of crisis

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The first shock of that World Cup
was Costa Rica’s victory
The most beautiful moment was   created by Roger Milla
The star who attracted attention
was Carlos Valderrama
Maradona as well
But  Scotland and Brazil
were drawing
But suddenly the goal came
The goal Brazil didn’t need to score
And The Scotland team became
the lost generation
The tragic Italian story for the
Sotland team composed of heroes
