Uruguayan Finishing School

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m sending my son
to finishing school
in Uruguay.
Yes, Uruguay.
My friends make fun,
say I’m a fool
to run cash dry.
If he could go as far as
that young man who they call Suarez,
my genius none of them could e’er deny.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’m sending my daughter
to finishing school
In Uruguay.
Yes, Uruguay.
They’ll take her carbon,
make a jewel
who’ll catch the eye.
If I burn out a poor man,
at least I’ll turn out a Forlan,
who’ll maybe play some football in July.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’m sending my children
to finishing school
in Uruguay.
Yes, Uruguay.
I could have had
a swimming pool.
Now I scrape by.
When they bring football glory,
it’ll be another story.
That’s when the full repayment they’ll supply.
