Italia 1990 – Nessun Dorma (None shall sleep)

Watch on YouTube


The hairs stood on the back of my neck

From the opening curtain

Nessun Dorma

We did not sleep


Colosseum carnival, ticker-tape cheers

Gladiators, sunsets, Geordie tears


A spell was cast

That thrilled and chilled

That froze the past

Below the skin


‘We watched the stars and trembled

With love and with hope’

Klinsmann, Maldini, Gascoigne, Schillaciiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii


A beautiful tragedy



And our bittersweet penalty

That Pearced a million hearts

Is that, it’s not all over

When the fat man sings
