2010 a foreign boss
Our World Cup campaign disappointment and loss
A manager home grown was the answer maybe
Same body makeup and blood chemistry
2014 Roy took up the rein
A young set of Lions set off on the plane
To Rio, Brazil our hopes reignited
First game with Italy our hopes a bit blighted
Uruguay to come, had already been beat
But Suarez heads home; then one with his feet
We did all the maths the chance was so slight
Costa Rica beat Italy 1 – 0 Friday night
FA they back Roy to continue his preening
Costa Rica on Tuesday a game without meaning
Fans ever hopeful, heads down in their beer
Euros to come; 2016 our year
