There is a person, there is a man
Who was born on Argentine land.
He was very poor, no chances for success,
But his passion for football made him the best.
For the Cebollitas he started playing,
And since then, his skills were amazing.
At age 16 he played so good,
That in Argentinos Juniors he made his debut.
He then went to Boca, the teams he most loves,
And there he made history scoring tons of goals.
He then signed for Barcelona, a not very stable team.
But this man made his job, and gave Barca a relief.
It was time for our man to visit northern Italy,
And win everything with the disastrous Napoli.
He was at his best, he needed a test
So he went to Aztec land to win a World Cup for his fans.
Against the mighty England he scored a great goal
And he went to the finals with his “hand of God.”
Argentina won the final game, they were the new world champions,
and this man reached the biggest dream he had since his childhood.
His career went just fine, but Italy was malicious,
And there is where this man began with his drug addiction.
He consumed cocaine, and he was suspended,
But his career wasn’t over although it nearly ended.
Years after this, it was time for a World Cup.
It was held in the States in the year nineteen ninety-four.
There our man with Argentina played his last game.
His legs were cut, and it was a shame.
Argentina did bad in that World Cup
Just after our man left the team alone.
He continued playing for a few more years,
until he retired with Boca Juniors.
He was a great player, I’ll never forget.
And in football he was simply the best.
He is a genius, he is a god
for many people around the world.
Today he is old, today he is weak
he fights the drugs week after week.
He made millions of people happy,
Forgotten he will never be gonna.
We thank you for everything, Pelusa.
We thank you, Diego Armando Maradona.
