Loving The No Expectations

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 loving the no expectations
with no disappointment to follow
where humble pride but a faint hope inside
is a much better outcome to swallow

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and now we know how all those other teams felt
all those so-called ‘minnows’ we named
the ones in the past we would slaughter on paper
but never quite did in the game –
and I’m finding myself really chilled and relaxed
like a neutral who never gets stressy
with a really new line up un-littered with stars
and very devoid of a Messi!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 to be there in the sixteen is something itself
we’ve battled our way to a draw
we look incomplete but avoided defeat
it’s time to look forward to more –
and even the fans are realistic
no-one is missing the band
you can call it a time of transition
but somehow we all understand

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 so we’re loving these no expectations
with no disappointment to follow
humble pride but a faint hope inside
is a much sweeter outcome to swallow

Euro 2012. Group D England 1 – 1 France
