Zinedine Zidane – lyrics spelled correctly

This song is brilliant, but I haven’t been able to find a version of the lyrics with the names spelled correctly (yeah, so I’m a word geek). Here is my attempt at fixing that. (Vaudeville Smash, feel free to steal these back… or correct them.)

Zinedine Zidane – Vaudeville Smash feat. Les Murray

In 1972, under a scorching June sun, in the French coastal town of Marseille, two Algerian immigrants awaited the birth of their fifth child. Later that day, a star was born.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Verón.
Suárez, van Basten, Gianluigi Buffon.
Xavi, Iniesta, Drogba, Hazard.
Tevez, Schweinsteiger, Steven Gerrard.

Alessandro Del Piero, Neymar, Forlán.
Özil, Nakata, Jean-Pierre Papin.
Ballack, van Persie, Beckham, Giggs, Scholes,
but the strongest of them all…

Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane, superstar, superstar.
Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane, superstar, superstar.

Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, Kewell.
Nedvěd, Maldini, Agüero, Raúl.
Casillas, Cavani, Benzema, Mandžukić.
Mario Balotelli, Zlatan Ibrahimović.

Lothar Matthäus, Shevchenko, Cantona.
Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Romário, Rivaldo, Robinho, Ramires, Kaká.
Falcao, Franck Ribéry, Pirlo, Cahill, Kompany,
but the strongest of them all…

Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane, superstar, superstar.
Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane, superstar, superstar.

And you burn through the dark like a fire (Puskás, Eusébio).
So much more than the world is dreaming of (Beckenbauer, Platini, Best).
He’ll fight (Charlton) and his light (Cruyff)
will shine on and on and on (Baggio).
Oh why (Diego Armando Maradona)
with his will to survive (Pelé).

Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane, superstar, superstar.
Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane, superstar, superstar.

Cannavaro, Karagounis, Chicharito, William Gallas.
Sánchez, Mark Bosnich, Hulk, Alexi Lalas.
Wilkshire, Honda, Busquets, Dickie, Simão, Thierry Henry, Modrić, Vidal.
Park Ji-sung, Donovan, Eto’o, Zizou,

Zizouuuuu…

Zinedine Zidane, Zinedine Zidane.
He is a part of things.
He is a part of things.

(And a big thank you in advance to anyone who can tell me who “Dickie” is.)

    Speaking about “correct” spellings, there’s an accented “é” in both Zinédine Zidane and Carlos Tévez, whether the English-language media and even the English Wikipedia choose to omit the accent.
