Connect in the back of the net

Once again the Wales
do proud, and the
nation all sing their
This little country goes
marching on – to the
semi-final stages.

They ‘over-came’ the
mighty Belgium, by
scoring three super
Now bring on La-France –
believe me, anything

The people of the Welsh
valleys, are all singing,
oh, so loud.
There is no need for Sir
Tom Jones – or Dame
Shirley Bassey to pull a

The UK is now buzzing –
despite the Brexit vote.
The friendly people of
Wales – they all sing a
tuneful note.

The miracle of football
can unite Europe forever,
As Euro 2016 pursues a
great new adventure.

Some ‘World-Class’ teams
are still there – like
Germany and Iceland,
Followed closely by Italy

As peace, love and equality,
will reign supreme forever.

So let’s all sing together
our brothers and sisters

Could they really surprise

Football is the king of sport,
and it yields special powers.

‘what happens in the bath
or the showers!!!!’

Euro 2016 is coming to a
close – but, who will win…
nobody knows!
Bring on the mighty Wales –
where the true spirit of
football grows.
