Let Those Three Lions Roar Once More

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 That time is upon us again
Another major tournament is here
Excitement. Anticipation
As kick off time draws near

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A dismal World Cup
Failure to qualify last time out
Expectations at an all time low
A nation filled with doubt

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Southgate. Pearce and Waddle
Forget all that penalty pain
Forget Carson against Croatia
And McLaren in the rain

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Roy Hodgson now in charge
Let’s give the man a chance
Get behind the boys
As they prepare to do battle with France

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Remember when football came home
And those three lions roared
Seaman’s penalty heroics
Shearer always likely to score

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Remember the shootout
Stuart Pearce against Spain
His passion. His relief
Joy unable to contain

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Remember Gazza
Of whom there is only one
Turning Hendry inside out
Volleying home under the Wembley sun

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So what of the current crop
I hear you ask
Scott Parker. Steven Gerrard
Lions in the middle of the park

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Joe Hart. Ashley Cole
Good enough to grace any side
You can do this boys
Wear those shirts with pride

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 First France. Then Sweden
Before we take on Ukraine
With our not so secret weapon
When Roy can finally unleash Wayne

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Watching across our green and pleasant land
Passion. Spirit. A must
Let’s all get behind Hodgson
In Roy I trust

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 A national bond. A united front
We must all forge
Follow your spirit and upon this charge
Cry “God for Harry, England and St. George”

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 So think Ramsey. Think Beckham
Hurst. Moore. Gascoigne too
Think Charlton. Think Shearer
I believe, do you?
