Come Down From The Mountain. Mr Blatter.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I wanna live in the land of the flugelhorn,
Eat Gruyere, and Toblerone bars,
Act the goat like Sepp Blatter, who surely ain’t normal
With his “There’s no racism today in football”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 On any given Saturday or Sunday
On playing field’s, in stadia and parks
We’ll mutter meek protest, prior to looking away
Without taking the accuser to task.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s “Either none of my business”
That tired old cliché
Or: “I don’t really wanna get involved.”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Well whose business is it
On the fields where we play
To eradicate this slur on our wonderful sport?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I know what we’ll do?
Abuse me at will
Ridicule me and take great delight
Insulting my colour of skin
My creed or my kin
Then shake hands, which’ll make it all right!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 “Its society’s problem”, another cliché
Yeah and hooligans are still rife in our grounds
There’s no talk and no action, so let’s look the other way
While Blatter’s FIFA* is a toothless old hound!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 “Racism will not be tolerated,” Says the tannoy
At the beginning of every home match
It isn’t just out on the field, which kind of gets me annoyed
I’ve heard families with young kids sprout this crap?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The last time a racist player or fan faced a ban?
Call me stupid, but I can’t seem to re-call
Yet I’ve watched and heard stuff via the telly or stands
Retribution? Sweet FA was all?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 This latest out-cry will blow over, guilty or innocent
A PR whitewash will paper over the cracks
But unless we do something soon supporting racism victims
The future for football, dare I say it’s… looking back!

Notes

*FIFA. Farcically Inept Football Administration.

The Teflon Kid (Sepp inept Blatter) and his cohorts are so out of touch with both good and bad aspects of mainstream modern society, and the lives of football fans, that if his current off the cuff remarks wern’t so seriously wide of the mark, they would be down right hilarious.

Sack the lot of them! How can we? They’re in charge!

Peace.

Kev.
