Treasure Island

Song: Go! Go! Socceroos!

Kick around a round ball.
Play the greatest game of all.
Curve that drive around the wall,
or simply push right through.
Move with lightning grace and speed.
An agile mind by guile succeeds.
A little luck is all we need.
Go! Go! Socceroo!

Go! Go! Socceroos!
Go! Go! Socceroos!
Ignite your passion; light your fuse.
Go! Go! Socceroos!

Take your corners with deft skill.
Make your pass obey your will.
Let 'em guess your ploy and drill,
but never give a clue.
Rove with daring thrust apace.
Probe defences, thinly spaced.
Take your chances. Race and chase.
Go! Go! Socceroo!

Go! Go! Socceroos!
Go! Go! Socceroos!
Strut your stuff; do as you choose.
Go! Go! Socceroos!

May your questing, restless souls,
merge to purge all glaring holes.
Keep your best for scoring goals;
striking sure and true.
'Gainst mounting odds in this World Cup;
but when your down there's only up.
And if we're crowned, it's joy we'll sup!
Go! Go! Socceroo!

Go! Go! Socceroos!
Go! Go! Socceroos!
Our hopes and dreams, run with your shoes.
Go! Go! Socceroos!

Go! Go! Socceroos!
Go! Go! Socceroos!
You're our heroes, win or lose.
Go! Go! Socceroos!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
