WE MILLIONS WATCHING

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This game is dearest to our hearts.
Through summer sun and winter rain
we millions watching play our part.
So hopeful at each seasons start,
we fall, stand up, renew again.
We millions watching play our part.
When true companionship pertains,
no war nor strife shall break the chain.
We millions watching play our part.
When moral frailties depart
may peace and fellowship remain.
We millions watching play our part.
The groupings on the World Cup chart
bring nations to the new campaign.
We millions watching play our part.
Supporting is a noble art
when sportsmanship defeats disdain.
This game is dearest to our hearts.
We millions watching play our part.
