Euro 2008 III : 2 close 2 call

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Right, I’m decided –
I don’t care who wins, so I’m staying neutral
And as to our absence
I’m sure the feeling’s mutual

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But nevertheless it could be fun
To watch from afar
So who is it I reckon
Will have the last ‘hurrah!’?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Well, I’m in quite a fix
For I cannot choose out of six

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It won’t be the defending champs –
I’m confident I’m not going out on a limb
Greece will definately not repeat their victory
And there’s another 9 I’m sure we can trim

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Sweden for starters
And there’ll be no Turkish delight
Both Poland and Romania
Should book an early departure flight

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I certainly don’t see
Any of the minnows emerging
No hope at all for mein hosts
However much adrenaline may be surging

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 As I flick through the online pics
I’ll try to whittle it down to six

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The Czech Republic, Croatia and Russia
Would all be a good outside bet
But the bookies are all indoors
So it’s not where I’ll put my money yet

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 As I sit here munching on a Twix
I cannot choose from the remaining six

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 From the Iberian peninsular
Spain, like England, are perennial underachievers
And you’d certainy fancy Portugal more
If they busied themselves like beavers

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Though they do have (but for how much longer)
“Our Ronnie ”
And they’re well backed
So their chances could be rated as ‘bonnie’

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Maybe I’ll have a game of pooh sticks
To help me choose just one out of six

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Well you certainly cannot rule out the Germans
Nor Italy as World Champs
Will Milan be the Euro cup destination
Along with Frankie Lamps?

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 And perchance – what of France?
Will it be all va-va-voom?
Or is it the year (but not, I fear)
For the Oranjeboom?

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Plenty of deliberation –
But if I had to show my hand
And give you just one name, it would have to be …

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Sssss…….

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 …… SPorGerFrItaland
