It Could Have Been Us

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I watched Croatia versus France –
The Final is a must!
But all the time kept thinking
That it could have been us.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Us out there on that Moscow pitch,
Us strutting proud our stuff,
The Trophy giving a fond kiss,
And holding it aloft.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We finished fourth, and that’s quite good,
And yet, not good enough –
Another team has claimed the Prize
We thought was due to us.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 All credit to our Gallic pals,
They’re taking home the Cup,
And hats off to Croatia,
Who gave them a good run.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The match was fine, result was right,
We can’t complain or fuss.
But think, it just so easily
Could have been us, us, us.
