Juninho Jest

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 That Juninho is facing you today
It’s just as well , your team can’t spell
Or they’d have stayed away
He’ll really run you ragged
He’ll make you puff and blow
But you will never catch him Juninho

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’s like some great magician as he weaves his magic spell
He’s from the land of footballers Brazil
Was voted player of the year in his own country
And wears the number ten, that once adorned Pele.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His skill is unbelievable, it takes your breath away
His speed is so incredible, he’s so quick
We love him here in England where he makes us shout with glee
Down at the Boro’s Riverside

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 That Juninho is facing you today
It’s just as well your team can’t spell
Or they’d have stayed away
He’ll really run you ragged
He’ll make you p – p – puff and bl- bl- blow
But you will never catch him Juninho .

Notes

I wrote this song which went on the Boro CD, Up The Boro. At the same time Juninho Paulista was playing for Boro, Juninho Perrnambuco was playing fof Spartak FC. They then used my song to celebrate their player on matchdays
