Why Can’t We Sing Like Them?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 these painted faces hair and clothes
these bouncing girls and men
they bay like armies off to war
why can’t we sing like them

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 their energy drums wild and free
we never quite compare
our children’s songs and age-old hymns
just don’t quite take me there

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 they boom and roar their voice soar
their passion know no bounds
they heave as one beneath the sun
and fill these Summer grounds

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 they dance and leap in unison
their voices rise again
we’re turgid in comparsion
why can’t we roar like them?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 we’re like the mouse that longs to be
a lion strong and loud
our blood is just the same as theirs
and we are no less proud

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 it’s time to make a mighty sound
it’s time to start again
next time we grace the bigger stage
oh let us roar like them

Notes

some of the chanting and singing at the Euros, especially the East European and Latin sides has been awesome..spine tingling..or is it just me?.
