The Lyrics

After the World Cup Final, everybody seemed to be talking about Mario Götze (the chap who scored the winner for Germany, for the non-footballing aficionados out there).. and every time I heard the name it reminded me of the Chas n Dave, er, masterpiece.

..turns out that Götze means "idol". Seems somehow appropriate, under the circumstances. No prizes for spotting the bit of Deuglish near the end :-)
Well there’s a footballer I didn't know
I hear that he's called Super Mario
He's been putting on a show, in the Bundeslig-a
He is an up-and-coming footballing lad, some say the best that Germany's had
He's not an idle idol - this is what the crowd will say:

Götze 'e's scored 'gain , Götze

Götze - As a kid, they knew that he'd be great
Götze - Can run and shoot, control and create
Götze – Will play for Dortmund & Bayern (not Madrid)
Götze – Won't go to Arsenal for thirty million quid

Götze 'e's scored 'gain , Götze
Football preaching, it's a funny ol' game

Now at the World Cup he gets the nod: he's a member of the Germany squad
But he's not starting, ain't that kind of odd - just ask Joachim Low
But when the final is nearly done, and Germany still ain't won
When it's too close for Klose, this is what the crowd will say:

Götze 'e's scored 'gain , Götze
Götze - when the World Cup final's on the line
Götze - nil-nil: the match has gone to extra time
Götze - when the Argentines are knocking on the door
Götze - when Germany really needs to score

Götze 'e's scored 'gain , Götze
Football preaching, it's a funny ol' game

[solo effort, probably on target]

Götze 'e's scored 'gain , Götze
Götze – Deutschland neueste Wunderkind
Götze – Von denen wir sehr stolz sind
Götze – Wenn wir brauchten, um ein Tor
Götze – Gegen Argentinien to score
Götze bekam mehr Tore, Götze
Fußball-eine ungerade alte Spiel

Götze - Deutschland zweitteuerste Fußballer
Götze - (that's their second most expensive footballer)
Götze - He cost thirty-seven million Eur-er
Götze - Only Mesut Ozil has been dearer
Götze - Played for Dortmund, now he plays for Bayern
Götze - Rather good.. you know what I'm sayin'
Götze - Plays for Germany, he's scored quite a few
Götze - ..and he's still only twenty-two

I kinda expected finding the original would be as hard as it is for current generation of Brazilians and/or Englishmen National Teams to find the area between the goalposts of the opposing team with the ball - but I was wrong, here it's is:

It's such a classic that googling the word "gertcha" gives a link to the video as its top hit :-)

..the funny thing is that until I decided to write this, I only knew one word of the original song, yet it's almost a part of the culture: almost everyone knew what I was saying when I mentioned Chas n Dave in reference to "Götze"
