It’s just like watching Braz…. well, maybe not

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the Copacabana, to the Maracana :

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They’re dribbling for Jesus
Meanwhile, we’re just left drooling for Jenas
They’re getting the better deal

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They’re able to produce Pelé
The best we can manage is a melée
They’re definately getting the better deal

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They play barefoot on the beach
And football too –
They’re certainly getting the better deal

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Though we did get to see Socrates, first-hand
But Garforth – best team in the land?
Once again, they got the better deal

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But where we do better the Brazilians
And without flashing around millions
Is that we can all go watch the real Deal –
Deal Town FC!

kick started after seeing the tv listings for last night –
the line ‘dribbling for Jesus’ was used to describe :
The Channel 4 series, Putting the Fun in Fundamental,
focusing on different religions. Last night’s edition
focused on 3 different religions in Brazil and drew the
obvious analogy of football being treated like a religion there.

And just to prove the Kent League team exist :
