Like this.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Now the word ‘football’ is my Cruyff
So it can go wherever it wants.
I can start with it and I can end with it.
Okay now ‘spellbinding’ has to be Neeskens
And ‘captivates’ goes to Haan.
Jongbloed in the role of ‘unfolds’
As he releases the ball on to the pitch.
Rijsbergen at the back is ‘cohesion’
Next to Suurbier of ‘movement’.
Jansen is ‘teamwork’ willing to fight
And Van Henegem takes ‘idea’.
Resenbrink can be ‘innovation’
Whilst Rep is always ‘inspires’.
Krol with his ability can be ‘nature’.

Place them where I want.
Or where I want I place them.
They can always fit in elsewhere
If need be.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Football welcomes the innovation
Of a new movement.
It inspires and captivates crowds
As beauty unfolds.
Here one man replaces another
Whenever he can.
Teamwork and cohesion
In it’s purest nature.
These groundbreakers will be
Forever warmly remembered.
This spellbinding idea has
Left it’s mark on football.
