WC2010 : Day 12

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Last round of Group matches – with everything to play for…
Bar Cameroon, who are already out.
Interestingly enough, Nigeria – who also have 2 defeats under their belts – still stand a decent chance of qualifying!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Daleks are coming ….

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Permutate! Permutate!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 One lot could be in
And others out
Even before a ball is kicked
Or the fans get to shout

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 One lot could be in for a while
Before eventually going out
Some by their own doing
Others in a rout

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 One lot could go through
Just at the last minute
With others missing out
Because they just couldn’t win it

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Permutate! Permutate!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Every match counts
As does every single goal
The fans go crazy
They urge and cajole

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Permutate! Permutate!

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 One goal here
Might just be enough
While two goals over there
And still it’s “tough!”

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Permutate! Permutate!

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Shots will whizz in
And chances flash wide
We’ll see the ecstatic
And the many who cried

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Permutate! Permutate!
