Of Germany versus Spain
The moment to banish forty four years
Of much ache and pain

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Triumph for Iberian beauty
Over the teutonic beast
Whilst Madrid set plans to ordain
Luis Aragones the high priest

Bought about much merry carouse
Joined in joyous unison
By the deafening roar of the Scouse

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A dour dire German show
Not many tears held back
Another forty years of wait
What price a gong for Ballack?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Matadors rampant in Vienna
Symbol of a nations long held hope
As Monsieur Platini handed to Casillas
All hail the champions of Europe
