21st Century Soccer

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You cheer your millionaires,
We cheer our millionaires,
And a man from Buenos Aires,
Cries himself to sleep.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You cheer your fake legends,
We jeer your fake legends,
And a man in Abu Dhabi,
Breaks promises he could never keep.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You cheer your fuzzy lion,
We cheer our furry dragon,
And a man in South Korea,
Grins from ear to ear.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We wear our polyester,
You wear your cheap nylon,
And a man in Stockholm,
Gets richer by the year.


Dedicated to Carlos Tevez
