1 He was born in sunny Rosario
2 But moved to Barcelona as a wee lad
3 He’s always had incredible enthusiasm for the game
4 And everyone knew he was going to be a star
5 Especially when Ronaldinho took him under his wing
6 It wasn’t long before he was calling the shots
7 Along with this man
8 He was in a two horse race with Cristiano Ronaldo to be the best in the world
9 Which made for a tasty battle
10 And split public opinion
11 But we all know Lionel’s better (sorry Ron)
12 Ronny must be sick to the stomach at the sight of him
13 Is he better than this man though?
14 Or this man?
15 Who cares!
16 We’re just lucky to have watched him turn from this
17 To this
18 All hail King Leo
19 And long may it last
