Farewell and adieu – sami Hyppia

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Giant soldier of the French revolution
From Willem to the English plateau
Years after being released by the Toon
To partner the giant Swiss Henchoz

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Kop and the faithful recognized an icon
Le boss Houllier’s new lynchpin
One recommended by a cameraman
Anfield at once embraced the big Finn

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Mirror image of the towering Ron Yeats
For 10 years Sami shook the Kop
Assured in the pantheon of legends
Part of the Reds sure rise to the top

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Made history for Rafa’s rearguard
Carra his defensive bro
Record shut-out against Saprissa.
Beating Dalglish’s ten in a row

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Whilst serving his boyhood heroes
Seven times Finland’s premier player
Momentary parting for he will return
Bootroom waits for the Nordic Mayor

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Number 7
