Copenhagen

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oi Mate
Let’s get this straight
The events in Copenhagen
Sicken this Nation

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sticks and stones flying
Women, children and tourists crying
Knuckle dusters out and bottles smashing
Kicks and fists doing a head bashing

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Idiots tooled up with knives
Playing with people’s lives
Blood flowing all around
As bodies lie stunned on the ground

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 All that horror and violence
Just makes no sense
Some might call it revenge
An attitude as out-dated as Stonehenge

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Fault lies on both sides
With taunts and derides
Neither opting for peace
Thereby requiring police

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Was it their intention
Just to get a telly mention
Get real, they’re just thick
Cart them off to jail real quick

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Teach them humility and manners
These uneducated spanners
Pander to them no more
Just put them behind the barred door

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The 2006 World Cup bid now in tatters
Reputation is not all that matters
Social intervention is required
For results inspired

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and wives
Let’s stop playing with lives
Where were your menfolk last night
And were their actions alright?
