1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Serenade

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Here I’m standing right outside your window.
Yes, I know you’d thought I’d gone to ground.
You’ve read about the World Cup in the Indo?
Well, that’s the reason I’ve not been around.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Matches on at lunchtime, as you know, dear,
Afternoon games whet your appetite,
Evening games the best part of the show, dear
And don’t forget the highlights late at night.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Today, at last, the World Cup takes a rest, dear,
Not a drop of football to be found.
My absence up to now will be redressed, dear,
Until the quarter finals come around.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 No, my dear, this isn’t a loud-hailer
You’re eying from your balcony above.
This is what they call a vuvuzela
And I’ve come to serenade your love.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Listen while I play a lilting air, dear,
Hear this composition wot I wrote.
Tonight its going to get its premiere, dear,
Shame it only plays a single note.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Your father’s out here cursing like a sailor,
Says he’s going to give me some advice.
That’s not the place to shove a vuvuzela,
Frankly, dear, that wasn’t very nice.
