"GLORY, GLORY, HAIL TO MOURA"

entry picture

(If you don't know what this is about it is safe to say you lead an impoverished life)

 

Mine eyes have seen the golden goals of Greavsie and of Smith

The silky skills of Hoddle, Gazza and those they played with

But now we add another to the pantheon of myth

As the Spurs go marching on.

 

Glory, Glory Hallelujah

Glory, Glory Hail to Moura

He was Tottenham’s hat-trick scorer

As the Spurs go marching on.

 

It’s over 50 years ago in 1962

We played against Benfica in a semi-final too

We lost on that occasion but this time we thundered through

As the Spurs go marching on.

 

Glory, Glory Hallelujah….

 

At half-time all the rest of you could never yet conceive

That turning round a three goal deficit we might achieve

But Pochettino told the boys to “Play and just believe”

As the Spurs go marching on.

 

Glory, Glory Hallelujah….

 

He’d substitute Wanyama so that as a consequence

He put Lorente up the front to hassle their defence

And when we got two goals back you could see all Holland tense

As the Spurs go marching on.

 

Glory, Glory Hallelujah….

 

The match was slipping from us as we entered extra time

But this is not the Spurs that give in nor is lacking spine

So when Lucas picked up Delle’s ball he breached the Ajax Line

As the Spurs go marching on.

 

Glory, Glory Hallelujah….

Thanks MC. But what could possibly improve on the line
“He’s a-trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored”? Magnificent.

A well-wrought hymn of homage to a team that performed a great
feat when it mattered. I nearly stood and marched around the room to your inventive words, JC. Fancy...BOTH major European tournaments being contested by teams from England. One for the
record books.

Raise a smile, Graham. We've three weeks to get off this cloud.
And get you money on Everton on Sunday; I think Poch will play the Ladies team.

Whilst the obvious artistic quality of this new era anthem is without doubt a matchless effort, my fifty-eight years of THFC discipledom fears for this level of jubilation.
