Majorca reports on a spate of late bookings I hear?
Unheard of – from Lufthansa – for the time of the year
Lidl’s flown in extra sauerkraut, bratwurst und bier
Tis even being said one can guarantee a towel-free sun-bed.
Without some belching Hamburger doing in yer head,
A shouting Dortmunder, or Berliner und kinder sat near.

In every crowded restaurant und bar
The talk is of Manuel Neuer or VAR
und where Bogey’s meticulous planning went South?
I mean…their trains run to the second on time
So how come this sudden fussball decline?
Tis unheard of, they just simply…don’t get knocked out.

Over café und kutchen
If no-one nearby is looking
The odd tear is still being shed
I’m told uber shot-stopper Oliver Kahn
Is an understanding custodian of calm,
“Could happen to anyone”, the ledge simply said

Die-hards Helmut and Marje
Recovering in a bierkeller/bar
Rise above the waves of shed tears
Tis – after all – nice to get a rest,
From whom und where are we playing next?
Guaranteed by them every four years

Why didn’t Bogey pick Leroy Sane?
Is being whispered in to every dour German’s ear
Though I have to question if…
One lightning quick, mere slip of a kid,
Could have changed…a proud nations fate against…South Korea?
