The Akond of Lille

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How do people really feel
‘Bout playing Lille?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Let’s hope we don’t get any crocks,
And any nasty, little knocks
Will heal,
‘Ere we face Lille.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’re sure our firm back four will cope,
And furthermore we strongly hope
That we’ll
Tear into Lille.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The French supporters will not quake
But hopefully our team will make
Them kneel
And pray for Lille,.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We’ll hope to dominate the play,
But fear that they might break away
And steal
A goal for Lille.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Perhaps we’ll have to sit and wait
To play the cards that fickle fate
Might deal,
When playing Lille.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 And, if our ship should rock, then we
Would hope to get back on an e-
-Ven keel,
When facing Lille.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 If Weso plays the best he can,
Twists and turns and finds his man,
Then he’ll
Put paid to Lille.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 “Ollie shows a turn of pace
And Stuey’s in the very place
To seal
A win ‘gainst Lille,”

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 No matter how they’re put away,
A sweeping move or even a
Back heel,
Will do for Lille.

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Will they come over really flash,
Attack our flanks with great panache
And zeal,
These men from Lille?

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Their keeper needs to be the biz,
A prisoner contemplating his
Last meal,
Defending Lille.

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Some other fans are heard to say
They want the French to win. Are they
For real,
Supporting Lille?

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 The mind-games can get out of hand,
Don’t heed the French supporters and
Their spiel –
They’re up for Lille.

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Emotions will run raw that night.
Are we afraid of what they might
Reveal,
When playing Lille?

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 The Gallic centre forward has
A bag of tricks as slippy as
An eel,
Inspiring Lille.

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 The permutations are quite high
Potential for a play by Bri-
-An Friel,
This match with Lille?

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 This match should be a tasty dish,
A platter of the finest fish
Or veal,
This game with Lille.

19 Leave a comment on verse 19 0 May Jamie be a roaring lion,
And Scouser be a man of iron
And steel
To face down Lille.

20 Leave a comment on verse 20 0 We hope the ground will quickly fill,
And that this thrilling contest will
Appeal
To fans of Lille.

21 Leave a comment on verse 21 0 With loads of lovely cash at stake,
Let’s hope the lads can win and make
Us squeal
By beating Lille.

22 Leave a comment on verse 22 0 We trust that bookings won’t accrue,
And that the ref will try hard to
Conceal
His love for Lille

23 Leave a comment on verse 23 0 We’ll all enjoy this merry cruise,
So long as we don’t go and lose
A wheel,
When playing Lille.

24 Leave a comment on verse 24 0 If we should win by two to nil,
I’m not sure if my red blood will
Congeal,
When beating Lille

25 Leave a comment on verse 25 0 The excitement that is felt by us,
Was only felt before by Buzz
And Neil,
Who soared o’er Lille.

26 Leave a comment on verse 26 0 Pray Nutsy gets his tactics right,
A four goal margin would be quite
Ideal,
At home to Lille.

27 Leave a comment on verse 27 0 There’s revolution in the air.
Come on, Shelbourne, let’s storm their
Bastille,
Ces hommes de Lille.

28 Leave a comment on verse 28 0 If Shels could overcome this foe,
The implications would be so
Surreal,
To conquer Lille.

29 Leave a comment on verse 29 0 Our prospects may look fairly grim,
And surely just a total im-
-Becile
Would bet ‘gainst Lille.

30 Leave a comment on verse 30 0 Don’t bask in reputations won!
My A Coruòa skin’s begun
To peel.
Watch out for Lille!
