HIS NAME WAS DIEGO ARMANDO MARADONA

A footballing genius was once born in South America,
the type a country longs for, for this we thank a country called Argentina,
he would for years grace the blue and white shirt of number ten,
What was this single footballing empire's name again ?

Short, built, strong, masculine and left footed,
bullet proof knees and eyes always goalward routed.
he would for years grace the blue and white shirt of number ten,
What was this single footballing empire's name again ?

Played for Boca, Barcelona, Napoli and Seville,
out of those it was at Napoli we saw him at his most real.
he would for years grace the blue and white shirt of number ten,
What was this single footballing empire's name again ?

Desire was always to win, thats why he committed the handball sin,
said it was god, anything to piss the damn English off,
he would for years grace the blue and white shirt of number ten,
What was this single footballing empire's name again ?

Authorities always after him, did'nt like him to play,
In Mexico '86 everyone was made to pay,
no-one could stop his quest for the title,
the World Cup was his in the envy of his rivals,
he would for years grace the blue and white shirt of number ten,
What was this single footballing empire's name again ?

The number 10 shirt thats what i remember most immense,
the way it used to turn and twist and tear apart any defence,
years full of exquisite goals and free kicks,
god! all that many teams took so many licks,
he would for years grace the blue and white shirt of number ten,
What was this single footballing empire's name again ?

Maradona was his surname,
I remember, i remember, that was his name,
Diego Maradona forever the best in the game.
