Twenty Twelve

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How do you feel about Team GB?
Do you wear the red, white and blue
It’s beyond club versus country
Or does Team GB mean nothing to you?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 How would it be if we had Team London
Fulham, Arsenal, West Ham in the squad mix
Would Chelsea fans embrace ‘Capital Kingdom’
With the Spurs goalie between the sticks

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 There’s debate on the ‘God Save the Queen’ thing
Some say it’s just for the English to sing
I would like to see all players join in
The team has a voice when it works for a win

Notes

The Olympics is like a giant Sports Day, a chance for athletes from across the world to come together and perform. That’s the theory. In reality, Team GB smells of England and no-one really wants much to do with us. The others only tolerate us as its our ball.
