Fontaine

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Way back in the fifties
In the days of tolerant France
From Spanish Ma, Moroccan Pa
Led defences a merry dance

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Knight of the French attack order
Justo Fontaine galloped with a lance
Yet an all time world cup record
Cracking home every thirteenth chance

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Debut hat-trick for the future French boss
Rubber stamping French allegiance
Goal in every match of a World Cup
Ghiggia’s record matched at a glance

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Marrakech Fontaine’s goal in every game
A quadruple for an advance
Then a hattrick and two braces
Thirteen by the end of the trance

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Lycée lyautey, Casablanca, Nice 
Stade de Reims to form an alliance
With Madrid bound Raymond Kopa
Aged twenty eight the knee failed the distance

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Number7
