Kirsty MacColl, 1959–2000. Link to the lyrics of England 2, Colombia 0. [1]Matthews, North Carolina | Thistle & Shamrock [2] host Fiona Ritchie paid tribute to the late Kirsty MacColl as well as football-themed lyrics by airing the late singer-songwriter’s “England 2 Colombia 0 [1]” in show no. 1180 this past weekend. The tune from the one-time punk rocker, who died in a diving accident in Cozumel in 2000, describes an ill-destined love affair against the backdrop of an England international:

You lied about your status
You lied about your life
You never mentioned your three children
And the fact you have a wife
Now it’s England 2 Colombia 0
And I know just how those Colombians feel.

The song appears on MacColl’s Tropical Brainstorm [3] album (Instinct [U.S.], 2001).
