Read this out loud.
It was the world cup final – everyone knew that,
There were only two names left in the hat,
So when the two teams faced each other that day,
the fans knew it’d be a game – right away.
The two teams in the match were the French and the Germans,
But the game didn’t fulfil, and the match was a poor one,
So no goals we saw, and it went on and on,
and as spot-kicks were announced, we thought “France have won.”
For the French, they had, three wonders from the spot:
Le Beast, Le King, and the best of the lot,
Le Blue they called him, and he was the best,
So we thought that the French had won the test.
But to the surprise of all, the first french takers failed,
Le Beast and Le King, twas misses that they hailed,
So the “Germs” were up by two kicks to none,
and the Germans thought that they had one.
But the next two Frenchies hit the back of the net,
and the Germans thought “No we haven’t won it yet”,
So the score stood at two kicks to two,
with two more men to take, including Le Blue.
And the German smashed the ball into the net,
So Le Blue needed a goal to get.
There was steel in his eyes, hot was his breath,
and everyone knew it would go to sudden death.
Up he stepped to kick the ball,
and he hit it a few miles too tall,
and (amazement of all) Le Blue has missed!
So it was by German hands that the trophy was lift’.
