I’d really like to write a story
On the team from Cameroon
How their team’s vain quest for glory
Bought a buzz to our living room.
Then I heard all about the money
Saw the madness of that Song
Watched Samuel Eto’o in the tunnel, on live T.V
Patiently trying to pacify a wrong ‘un’.
Instead I’ll focus on the Croats
Who robbed in their opening match,
By a homer for the favoured hosts,
Have put their World Cup back on track.
Yeah that’s the kind of story
I wanna hear about the beautiful game
A country overcoming adversity
Not of: idiots, rows on money or a head-butt on a team-mate.
