sweet brazil (30 years on 72-02)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 we chase we strive we give our all
while they are glorious on the ball

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 we run we break we stretch we try
while they glide effortlessly by

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 we hurry moves and struggle on
while they’re content to glide like swans

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 we rush we stretch we fly we roll
while they just purr and skate and stroll

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 our temples strain to reach each glance
from feet and hips that shift and dance

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 we reach for crosses with our head
they place it in the net instead

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 such casual elegant disrespect
of pain their silky skills inflect

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 and in the end they’ll shine and glow
as sure as their names end in “o”

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 for every time we score… they will..
so who’ll outplay this sweet Brazil?

Brazil 5 Costa Rica 2
