The tales of Old Seville

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When you hear the tales of old Seville
The castle, cathedral and the local goodwill
Remember too the Celts were there
A vast great throng, none could compare.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A football game they went to see
They partied on so gleefully
A hundred thousand, maybe more
All to see King Henrik score.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Alas, the result was not to be
But Seville was touched eternally
And in years to come when nights grow long
The tales of Seville will still burn strong.
