1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Croatia 1 Italy 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You’re the cat with the cream, Slaven Biliæ,
an advertiser’s dream, Slaven Biliæ.
You are nobody’s fool,
the epitome of cool,
you’re the sharpest damned tool
in the village.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You’re an icon of style, Slaven Biliæ,
with your earring and smile, Slaven Biliæ.
You can wear any suit
with creases acute,
when your team comes to loot
and to pillage.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Are you a Foo Fighter fan, Slaven Biliæ?
A Brian Ferry man, Slaven Biliæ?
Did you like INXS?
Lady Gaga, I guess?
I bet you never liked Yes
or Steve Hillage.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Are you a farmer at heart, Slaven Biliæ?
Throw the hay in the cart, Slaven Biliæ?
Do you secretly ache
for a hoe and a rake
and a vast hundred ac-
-res of tillage?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Italians were rocked, Slaven Biliæ,
by the second half, shocked, Slaven Biliæ.
Will Spain be destroyed?
Is your keeper now buoyed?
Has he trained to avoid
any spillage?
