Germany 1 Ireland 0

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We thought there’d be a mighty blitz,
We feared we might get burnt.
We thought we would be blown to bits,
But thankfully we weren’t.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Poor Stevie had been stammering
‘Bout geeing up the players.
But we foresaw a hammering
And bowed our heads in prayers.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 At times poor Shay was left to rue
The absence of protection,
But still, we only went down to
A really cruel deflection.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I still don’t think we’ll qualify,
Our strength in depth is lacking,
But this team won’t lay down and die,
And thus deserves our backing.
