Missing out On FIFA World Cup 2002

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There are no words that can explain
The awful heartache and the pain
That dreadful day when it was known
My beloved Oranje would stay at home

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The fact depressing me the most
On that disgraceful day
Was that my hero, Nistelrooy
Would have no chance to play

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 For he has skill, equalled by few,
If anyone at all
That magical ability
Every time he kicks a ball

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He would have surely helped them
At home or even away
But now we have a second chance
As long as Ruud can play

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 This European championship
Brings chances for my team
The endless opportunities
To realise a dream

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Van the man will lead us
To victory and good form
With all our skill and power
We’ll take Europe by storm

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 There is never any doubt
Within my heart I’m sure
If Ruud is anywhere near goal
He will certainly score

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 There are no words that can describe
The excitement building up inside
Oranje will no longer let me down
They will return with Europe’s crown
