*Lines of the Original poem*:

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals!

Prove your
Patriotism on the field of play
And send shocks
Down the spines of your critics & foes

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals!
                                                            
Keep going
Till you end our long overdue catastrophe &
Prove to the world
That you deserve that trophy!

Set upon
Our weary faces unending smiles
And give pride
To the many Ghanaians  who watch you across several miles

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; keep soaring
Till you tell
A story worth your glory

Prove the strength
That lies within the Ghanaian feet
And shine & sparkle
For you are our gallant stars!

Go Black Stars;
Go and glow, go Black Stars and score the goals!

We eye for your victory
& long for your glory
Awesome as gods
Of the pitch, let your rainbow spread across the skies

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars
And unleash
Your _socceristic_ blow

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars
And return
With the trophy!
