Give Him a Ball

(Many of the world's most famous footballers, such as Pele and Ronaldo, have used the sport to escape their life of poverty):

Give him a ball so he can kick
Curl, dribble, head, learn incredible tricks

Give him a ball so he has the key
The means, the power, the hope to succeed

Give him a ball to open the door
Escape poverty, hunger, famine and war

Give him a ball he'll exceed expectations
Find fame, wealth, health and explore foreign nations

Give him a ball to raise him high up
Win medals, trophies, competitions and cups

Give him a ball then watch him soar
As his shot hits the net and the crazy crowd roars

Give him a ball and he'll never die
Give him a ball and he'll fly
