The Eyes of the World

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Come to me with the grace of Jair
Vex me with Platini flair
Like Giresse jink and quickly swerve
Upon this blessed emerald turf
You and me and the eyes of the world

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A quick one two watch Rooney’s toe
Xabi Alonso a Picasso
King Larsson rules Prince Ronaldo
Beneath a sky of flags unfurled
You and me and the hearts of the world

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Vieri shoots can Robbo save
Beckham’s hair like Cisse’s changed
Et’o Henry light up the game
Owen like a ghost returns
You and me and the soul of the world.
