THE LISBON LIONS

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Lisbon Lions who ran
Never a team in tow
They matched Internazionale man to man
All born in touching distance of Glasgow

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Cappellini felled by Craig, Mazzola fires in the pen
Inter retreat into a cocoon like defence
As it looks much like boys versus men
Gemmell levels from Craig’s pass, as things start to get tense.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Eighty three minutes, Gemmell is allowed space
Murdoch’s shot deflected by Chalmers to score
The crowd bay for the countdown race
As the Lions get ready to roar

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 History, as the Bhoys hold on in Lisbon town
And thus become the very first British club to lift the crown
