Franky Van Der Elst

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Franky’s journey began at Molenbeek
When he was still very much a pipsqueak

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Thereafter he wore the national rouge
And a career move to Club Brugge

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Four world cups, eighty six to ninety eight
Two golden shoes for this defensive midfield great

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Diligent carrier with Leo his namesake
For Enzo Scifo was the icing on the cake

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Amazed after his only goal against Norway
Amidst thunderous applause by the Belgian soirée
