Still…In With A Shout.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tis so cool to be there, still in with a shout
Having real pride, a sense of belief
Enviously watching some other crowd,
Going totally ape on a victorious street,
All too often…feels like a right kick in the teeth.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 While them Germans are off blagging beach-beds
Spain consider making changes…again
Argentina arrive home in complete disarray
Nae Ma an his stylist ponder a chic line in threads,
The city where he may ply his trade?…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Our dogged country goes about business
A slight swagger, a smile in the street
“It’s Coming Home?” to a mate you might meet?
NHS birthday parties that’ll feel like it’s Christmas
If and when Croatia are beat?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Maybe, just maybe…our time is now?
Who knows till after Wednesday nights match?
One thing for certain without any fear of a doubt
We deserve to be there on merit, still in with a shout,
Thanks…to an unassuming team (remember that word?) of no-nonsense chaps.



Interesting feeling at this stage in proceedings, to still be in there with a chance of… who knows what? But it’s definitely show-time – the stuff dreams are made of – from here on in…is it not?

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
