Jeepers keepers – England 1-1 USA

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Much singing, chanting and fireworks
Head honcho with a standing ovation
King Leruo Molotlegi
Head of the Bafokeng Nation

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Cacophony of clamour and colour
Rustenberg home to the England heartbeat
Bafeking roused from it’s slumber
Fabio just sought a clean sheet

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Skipper with a dream start
Just four minutes on the clock
Big Emile with the lay off
Corporal Gerrard fired the Glock

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Agony for those on HD
ITV again driving the punters mad
Heskey’s assist and Stevie G’s finish
Replaced by a Hyundai ad

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then along popped Greenfinger
Just the Jabulani to clutch
Drawn into Dempsey’s web of sin
Short lapse and a faulty touch

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 A massive howler from Greeny
Was it a bobble or faulty hip joint?
Dempsey’s hopeful punt
Gifting the States a welcome point

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Ostensibly feeble shot
Trickled agonisingly over the line
But Greeny’s good enough to recover
And give the doubters a straight V day sign

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 “It’s about mental strength,”
Greeny shouted from the steeple
“I didn’t let it affect me mentally,
“Worse things have happened to people”

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 12.06.10

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Number 7
