The Vuvuzela

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Not a swarm of bees
And not thousands of locusts
It’s Vuvuzelas.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A deafening noise
Over hundred decibels
Turn the telly down.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A Vuvuzela
To some it’s just like Marmite
Love it or hate it.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We had our rattles
Older fans didn’t like them
I thought they were great.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Vuvuzela
So loud and so colourful
Very African.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So will this trumpet
Be heard at our football grounds?
Earplugs given out.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The Vuvuzela
Should stay in South Africa
We’ve got our singing !

I’ve got used to it now, but it isn’t to everyone’s liking.
But I would like to experience it myself, but I reckon it could get on your nerves after a while. I sit near our drummer at the Ricoh, but that is nothing to the sound of hundreds of these Vuvuzelas is it !
