1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football is the beautiful game
The great Pele would often muse
But nothing seemed the same
Watching the Boxing Day news

Lives in Asia needing to be saved

And pull out their plastic cards

Survivors still on their guards

Wanting to help out as well
The players & staff & supporters
Giving from their enormous hearts

Through Yanks-Abroad too
You’ll be helping all those people
And may win something for you

A Fulham shirt from Carlos Bocanegra
Or even teammate Brian McBride

Donovan, Convey, Beasley
Perhaps you’ve heard their names

Win a football shirt for yourself
Your dad or your mom

Give elsewhere, it’s all the same
Help the unfortunate
Support the beautiful game
