In The Star Spangled Manner.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Soccer’s chic, soccer’s hip
Soccer Beckham’s way
The PR machine is on a trip
And has landed in L.A.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Movie stars and pseudo fans
Will occupy the stands
And Queen Vicky, what will she do now?
Oh, she’s got other plans.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Soccer’s really on the map now
Alongside good old Uncle Sam
Holy freekicks Batman
I’ve become a Beckham fan!



If I hadn’t seen this hyped up arrival of the tail end of a half decent man’s football career, on the front page of the London evening paper, last night. With my very own eyes I wouldn’t have believed it.

Only in America.
