Melt like ice

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Beckham scored first through Lampard’s head
What a goal that gave us hope
Minute by minute the game ain’t dead
With tight defense we could cope

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Barthez spots right, penalty failed!
We thought one goal would be enough
Just mark them tight, keep France trailed
Our defenders are tall and tough

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It was a magic moment for France
When we’re level one point we’ll share
But the nightmare came in a glance
When Henry runs out of nowhere

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Yikes! What happened to you, James?
A penalty for France’s the cost!
Trudging steps in two more games
While we were stranded after the lost!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 For ninety minutes the lead we had
Until Zidane found the net twice
Some were shocked, some get mad
While I stood here, melting like ice
