GALLANT IN DEFEAT

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hopes were high on Friday
When England came to play
Brazil their next opponents
In the World Cup far away!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We got up very early
Had breakfast and got dressed
Then we sat and watched
Michael Owen at his best!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jumping up and screaming
When he scored his goal
Now to keep their nerve
Was our team’s next role!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Just before half time
The Brazilians changed the score
Now our players must defend
Much harder than before!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A free kick to Brazil
Gave them a two – one lead
You couldn’t blame our Keeper
Their man he had great speed!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Then the Brazilian scorer
Much to our surprise
Received the Referee’s red card
Right before our eyes!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Even with a ten man team
They played a brilliant game
That either team had to lose
Was just a crying shame!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Off to school with heavy hearts
We then had to go
Our St George flags flying
Because we’re proud you know!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Our English lads had done their best
Are coming home – now beat
But rest assured each one of them
Is gallant in defeat!
