Hurrah, hurrah for Spain
and its gold medal she gained!
Handball match was hatched
and Spain won the game.
Now Spain is the champion,
the champion of this world game!
Handball is played by these men
and Spain is this year's master.
35 scores she made and Denmark
had its hard time to catch up;
with only 19 scores for Denmark
the game was not really tough.
Anyway, congratulations Spain!
Congratulations for your fame!
The value of your gold is only
ensured by the silver of Denmark.
Spain won in the World Championship in Handball making the scores of 35 over and against Denmark's 19. Spain won the gold medal and Denmark, the silver one.
