With springs on your boots,

You flew above the rest,

The ball glanced off your head,

A goal that was the best.

You wear your shirt with pride,

Your blood runs blue,

We couldn’t ask for a better captain,

Than the one and only you.

Your heart belongs in Manchester,

In fact you married a Manc,

You took your team to glory,

For that we have you to thank.

You’ve battled through adversity,

You’ve put your body through hell,

But you fight like a warrior,

Man you sure are swell.

You made an impact from day one,

You’ve helped your teammates grow,

So, here’s to you Vincent Kompany,

City, loves you more than you will know.
