WC2010 : Day 7

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Offside by a mile!
“Mais oui – referee!”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Offside by a mile?
But oh how we smile
And wryly so
As Mexico
Exact retribution
Their contribution
To Ireland’s cause
Expose Gallic flaws
And get their reward
As they put France to the sword
And send them to the guillotine
Oh how happy each team in green!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Break for the border, supporting the boys in green

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 In party mood
As I eat my food
But why so stewed?
Now I’m no prude
But as I chewed
No love accrued …..
Just coz some dude
(Since rightly boo’d)
& cud’a been sued
Did once intrude
On our Celtic brood!
We can conclude – – –
That with cheating hand
He helped them land
In the realm of rand…
But how unplanned
To be outmanned
And not withstand
El banditos from ‘cross the Rio Grande

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So, just one sleight of hand
But how the flames were fanned
Maybe now you’ll understand
Why we’re glad they’re canned?



Offside by a mile – it appeared
Until the slo-mo proved – what a great call by the linesman.

And Man Utd’s new boy, Javier Hernandez, rounded the keeper Lloris to ensure a sepulchral night for the French, in stark contrast to the Nations of Mexico and Ireland!
