Javier Zanetti - San Siro hero

Long ago number four shirt Zanetti 
Was deemed to weak as a trainee
Shedload of medals in the Inter jersey
Boots hang after a sixteenth trophy

The first signing for Signor Moratti
Was Ambrogino d'Oro Zanetti
Hundred forty five caps for the Albiceleste
Madrid crown for Internazionale

Always that same hair combed by "pupi"
First Calcio captain to lift a treble solely
After nineteen years with the Nerazurri
Hero joins Fachetti, Bergomi, Materazzi

Today Javier Zanetti plays his last Inter game away to Chievo. What a servant he's been to the club. True football legend.
