Summer of Sixty Six- Part Sixteen



There’s one minute left

The English ahead

The Desperate Germans

Threw all that they had

Their one last chance

To level the score.

Moore from the back

Spots Hurst is free

He picks him out

With a perfect pass.

Some spectators 


Have come on the pitch.

Hurst blasts the ball

As hard as he can.

And to everyone’s joy

It’s into the net.

The commentary’s famous

Won’t be forgotten,

“And here comes Hurst,

Some people are on the pitch

They think it’s all over

It is now! It’s four!

So Hurst is our hero

He has three

And England’s 

Is the victory.

But If you think it’s all over

It isn’t yet!

For England’s heroes

The game was won.

But for the kids of Wickrath

It had just begun!
