1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Viera, Viera, we hear the crowd roar
As upward and onward the great Gunners soar
Pires springs forward like a cheetah on fire
Henri goes to join him, a sight to inspire
As if on elastic attached to each boot
The ball glides from man to man
The fans, on their feet now, are screaming out; “ SHOOT!”
And Henri obliges, as only he can.

And you’ve seen this great team at their best
You’ll applaud at the mention of each wondrous name
And I don’t need to tell you the rest.
Real were a dream, Man U at the top
Were marvellous, I know; I was there
But the top of the cream, the pick of the crop
Was Arsenal, beyond compare.
