1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 #1. Looking ahead

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’ll be a World Cup song
And a bellyful of fire
With fans streaming down the Autobahns
Looking for results to match desire

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A juggernaut of jingoists
All revved up, from another eventful season
But will there be success, allowing us, to proudly proclaim :
World Cup Winners, ‘diesen’!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Note :
‘diesen’ – German for ‘these’

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 #2. Words worthy of a medal?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Wandering lonely through daffodils and clouds
Poets as confused as punters :
For which England will turn up in Germany –
The rubbished, or the World Cup glory-hunters?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 #3.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Well, that’s qualification achieved –
In the run-up, there were many peeved.
Let’s not lose all sense of proportion
The doom and gloom, was a distortion
But over-hyped dreams are a danger too
Still, let’s hope the team gels, when we let loose the Roo!
