One way traffic

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The big surprise
Was the near demise
Of BOTH Italy and France

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Good at poses
Now the curtain closes
As they finish their game of ‘chance’

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 There was no romp
Through this comp
For two woebegotten teams

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Oh how we scotch
As we watch
Via tv satellite screens

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 But at least
They made the feast
Unlike us Western Isles

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 While we pout
There’ll be no rout
Only sardonic smiles

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Yet the Azzuri advance
Leave behind France
Their reputation nearly in tatters

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 But they’re through
The stallion crew
And that’s all that really matters
