Keep Your Shirt On, FIFA

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Keep your shirt on, FIFA,
Where is your heart and soul?
What’s wrong with vests
And hairy chests
When someone scores a goal?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’s something very harsh about
This rule you will deploy –
A yellow card
Is rather hard
For mere “excessive joy.”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What if your sleeves were dirty and
You went to take your shirt off?
Would you be booked
Because you looked
To rub a bit of dirt off?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Let me get this straight, lads –
(The time-frame isn’t broad)
No-one’s probing
Shirt disrobing,
‘Cept when goals are scored?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So taking off your shirt when a
Goal-kick is to be taken –
It’s quite okay
In open play,
Or pray, am I mistaken?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Crack down on the diving, lads,
Ensure that cheats are banned,
But to destroy
“Excessive joy”
Is getting out of hand.
