Mission Impossible – “with hope in your hearts!”

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “Your Mission – should you choose to accept it
Is to beat Barcelona 4-0
Without Mo Salah
Without Bobby Firminho
And with Andy Robertson going off at half-time
And, with old-boys Coutinho and Chewy Luis grinning and gurning
Somehow you have to introduce, pace, passion and rhyme.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Good luck with that!
This tape, just like your chances
Will self-destruct in 3 seconds”
At kick-off
There just aren’t enough Tom Cruise stunt doubles
To alleviate Liverpool’s troubles

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But, as it turns out
There were 54,000 script-writers there last night
Who hoped and believed
And left Anfield, both stunned and relieved
Elated and sated
Canonising Klopp and his team
And living, the impossible dream!
