22 Carat Gold Legged Football Team

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 22 carat gold legs win championships
The billionaires’ football booty
Patrons of commodity
A design of well-heeled beauty
110 affluent Euro twinkle toes
Climb to the top of the Deloitte Football Money League
A Portuguese appendage with a Spanish limb
Plus part of a Luxurious Italian
Dutch calves and South American hips
Make victors of premier sponsorships
Sterling English metatarsals with Scottish grassy knees
Guarantee revenue from satellite television
And corporate hospitality
Danish trotters double the price
Of replica shirts and merchandise
An acquisition of an African set
Adds trophies to the cabinet
A pitch full of German hoofs
Along with prosperous Chinese pairs
Perform to prawn sandwich spectators
To play out the game of millionaires
