1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Rooney the top scorer
scoring goals for fun
England are now through
and his goals have just begun

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 England’s youngest player
probably their best
dribbling past defenders
making them want to rest

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Since Rooney came to football
England aren’t the same
moving up a level
changing their game

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Rooney is a magician
he loves scoring
now he’s got the fame
Owen’s gone boring

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Rooney scores more than Henry
putting him to shame
not as old as him
but better at the game
