We won’t go all the Way

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’ll soon be off to Deutschland,
We’re getting all psyched up.
And certain fans still kid themselves
That we can win the Cup.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “This time, this time, we’ll get it right.”
Is what I hear them say.
“Make no mistake, we’re at our peak,
We CAN go all the way.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A goal or three against the Swedes,
With little or no sweat.
While Paraguay and Trinidad
Should not prove tough to beat.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And once we’ve seen off that lot,
The rest will be plain sailing.
We’ll board a bus straight to Berlin,
And leave the others trailing.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then on a sultry July night,
We’ll win a hard-fought Final.
We’ll rule the waves, we’ll rule the world,
We’ll tower above our Rivals.”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 This upbeat talk is nothing new,
We’ve heard it all before.
In younger days I shared such views,
But now I’m not so sure.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 I’ve gazed into my crystal ball,
The future for to see.
You wanna know how things will go
This year in Germanee?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 We’ll make it through the Group Stage,
The first match after that.
But have no fear, we’ll lose the next,
And home come scuttling back.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 The sun’s set on our Empire.
Our Gunboats have been scrapped.
The Prize we seek’s beyond our reach,
For God’s sake, cut the crap!

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Yes, all you fans who dream and hope,
Take heed of what I say:
Our name’s not written on this Cup.
We WON’T go all the way!
