One Thousand Goals

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Pele is famous for all of those goals
But they looked at the records and found holes
It appeared for every odd kickabout
That all those strikes made up his account.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Romario too has reached that proud boast
His name now famous on every coast
So eager to hit the famous target some day
He considered all the goals that come what may.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 If Josep Bican had done just the same
He might have five thousand to his name
Perhaps forgotten but in space there’s no void
For they gave his name to an asteroid.
