To see ‘The Irons’ run out on the pitch
The ‘Star Spangled Banner’ is what they’ll be singing
For an ‘Ammer’ whose just struck it rich.

For all pulling together, during The Blitz
And Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Geoff (hatrick) Hurst
Are still locally worshipped, for the ’66’ hammering of Fritz.

On Newsnight, News at Ten or Panorama
Remember he’s a bona fide ‘Ammer’ like Hurst, Peters or Moore,
The new president of America… Barack Obama!
