Divided Loyalties.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sat indoors eyeing the plasma
Living room walls rouge et blanc
She’s chanting an inwardly mantra
For a shed load of gelt in the bank.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Her man gestulates at the telly
Her kids aim a foot at each cross
She turns her head sideways as bellies
Bloated by beer and saurkraut start to rock

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Next door her neighbours are roaring
“Wazza for Gods sake please score”
She’s prays David James will go missing
When The Germans begin to come forward.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Her man lifts his gaze from the action
As his north and south opens to speak
Philip Lahm gallops onwardly gallant
The spherical glued to his feet.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Her heartbeat begins to race quickly
As Lahm aims a cross at back post
Which is perfectly missed by Podolski
Why it weren’t even what you’d call Klose.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 “Babe ain’t you cheering for Ingerland?”
Says her man as the ball exits play
Her kids tumble just what was missing
Coz mum usually has plenty to say.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 National grid starts to flicker midst halftime
As she’s angrily brewing the tea
“If the Germans had Ballack things would be fine”
She hisses between gritted teeth.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Klinnsmann is sat mongst the pundits
Giving his perfect teeth view on the game
“Der Bomber would simply have loved this”
He says with a smile toward Adrian.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 As the twenty two enter arena
Her pulse starts to quicken again
“Mein Gott let Klose take JT to the cleaners”
She chants closely watching the play.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 As the big game approaches this Sunday
Spare a thought for the punters who keep
Hoping the Germans keep Ingerland at bay
After drawing our foe in “The Sweep”!


Dedicated to a special someone I know who has drawn The Germans at work in “The Sweep”.

Enjoy the game whoever you’re shouting for.
