Totò Schillachi – Bolt from the Blue

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Leapt between two against Austria
“You’ll score,” said Tacconi
Eternal City with a mass cheer
Rome salutes Toto Schillachi

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Watching the Palermo boy fly
Heading the Czechs a swift death wish
Swerving drive against Uruguay
Uppercut to Big jack’s Irish

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Play off against England did proud
Fleeting hero who made a breakthrough
Arms outstretched he milked the crowd
Toto the bolt from the blue

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Azeglio Vicini’s much fancied Azzurri
Just short of World Cup glory
Baggio’s magic adding such memory
Le Notti Magiche di Totò Schillaci

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number7
