If it happens, it’s ‘cos I shouted encouragement in my living room.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ll be shouting at the TV screen,
hoping they can hear me in Istanbul,
Modern technology!
‘course they can!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Will I be thinking of Igor as a legendary midfielder?
or of Jerzy as the best goalie we ever had,
probably if time claims it’s benefits.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘Course Stevie will be etched and sketched,
upon minds and A3 sheets,
pencil drawings sold in St. John’s,
now that both Robbie and Mickey have gone.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Carra though,
eh?
Now that’s solid, solid gold,
have to go to Tiffany’s to get one of those!
