We went to see Brazil

Ready to see some skill

We wandered through the street

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Hey you! Scottish guys!
Last night did we not meet?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Hey pal, dunno, by the way
Who’s askin’ who’d you say?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I’m a journalist from Africa
Aren’t you playing Brazil today?

We’ve been drinking since half ten!

Will you honour us by coming then?

A date with Ronaldo and co

Would be to say thanks.. but no

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 We went on to watch our beloved Scots
Lose two one ‘gainst the samba stars

The Scottish team trained in bars
