We are Genoa!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We are Genoa CFC,
Founded 1893.
We have won nine Scudettee –
Nine times Champs of Italee!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Got sent down to Serie C.
Bounced straight back to Serie B.
Twelve months later moving up and on,
Into the Top Flight, where we belong.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Last played there in ’95.
Since then twelve years have gone by.
More than a decade out in the cold –
A drain on the body and a blight on the soul.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Nightmare is over,
The Dream has begun.
We’re over the moon,
And we beam like the sun.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We’ll write a few cheques,
And we’ll strengthen our Squad,
Cut out the dead wood,
And bring in new blood.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Gradinata Nord will be packed to the gunwales.
We’ll roar on The Lads as they come out the Tunnel.
Marassi will burst when we net our first goal –
A balm for the body and a boost for the soul.
