Warning : England Still Contain Hope

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 we sailed through qualifiers
like toy ducks in a bath
we felt our group looked doable
but dare not plot our path
with home advantage on our side
our opener looked tough
the dark horse of Croatia
but one goal was enough

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Scotland fought as Scotland do
and proved our sternest test
we held our nerve and took the point
though we weren’t at our best
up next the Czechs would prove a threat
we fought with heart and soul
a battle won to put us top
again a single goal

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and as we meet long-time foes
we ask is this our time?
there’ll never be a better chance
to put the past behind
a moment for returning fans
to roar on this young side
a chance to make the quarters
and restore dreams and pride

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 like sailors bound for stormy seas
to lands so far away
we journey on with something
and our belief this day
like tins they carried with them
like warnings you might see
of something hidden deep inside
like sap within a tree

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 a time to raise our voices
to be the extra man
for everybody out there
to summon all they can
to leave the Germans all at sea
and struggling hard to cope
and like a warning remind all..
we still contain hope

Notes

Was thinking about warning on tins..and packaging .

Warning …May contain nuts etc;

or in our case Warning : Watching England… may contain hope!
