Get Me A Flight Out OF Here, I’m Worried!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hello is that the travel agent? I’m calling by phone
To see if you can you get me a flight home
Yeah as soon as you can, like…. right away?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There seems no point in me staying here
Or I’ll just end up crying in me beer
“Whats that? Why did I phone to get an early flight
Home from the World Cup”?
Well I’ve just seen the Argentina team play

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Diego Armando was stood in the grandstand
Adorned in a blue and white striped shirt
Cheering for the team that he’s graced since his teens
Face ravaged by past pain and it’s hurt

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It was wonderful to see him looking so good
Raising his voice to spur on the boys
The stadium in Gelsenkirchen was full to the brim
Awash with excitement and noise

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 An astonishing array of attacking play
Free flowing movement and class
Even allowing for Kezman’s dismissal
It was sheer artistry out there on that grass

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Twenty four passes ended up with a goal
Set up by a cute Crespo back heel
Anyone who saw this must have been just blown away
By the technique and magnificent skill

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Two youngsters were sent on to give it a go
Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez
Is there some sort of production line out there in the Argentine
That keep’s churning out class players like these?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Tevez reminds me of the maestro Maradona when young
Built like a bull and such hips!
Cloggers may try to damage his ankle’s and thighs
Me? I wouldn’t bother or try
T’would seem that they’re made out of brick!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Messi’s just nineteen years old
God what a talent he is
He has confidence, stature, skill to cause rapture
No wonder he’s idolized by Spain’s kids

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 What can you say of Riquelme?
His penetrating runs, his deep probing style
As he feeds the front line all in his own sweet time
When he’s not scoring goals with such guile

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Anyway after this fine feast of fantastic football
I’d advise everyone else to give up
So get me a flight out of here by tonight
As I’ve just witnessed that fine team from the Argentine
Who could probably win the 2006 FIFA World Cup?
