F.I.F.A Fi Fo Fum….

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ….(We hear The Sound of The Failed Bid Drum)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 what is it with our papparazzi*
is there nothing that they’ll not stoop to?
if it’s truth or it’s lies they will surely deny us
the World Cup for me and for you

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and what is it with FIFA’s committee
do they not make enough from it all?
now the talk of corruption has kicked off some ruction
and you know we’re the bid that will fall

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 we’re just brilliant at shooting ourselves in the foot
we’re superb at announcing some fix
we entice all our stars and seduce them in bars
with the simplest of underhand tricks

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 it’s no wonder we never win nothing**
we play with our fears near and far
we’re just snails in the race and we’re losing our place
with our cynical press and PR

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 so a big hand for our papparazzi*
to our freeloading Press girls and boys
is there nothing you’d stop at
and for once can’t you drop that
old button you press…… that destroys***


1*.Paparazzi (pl. n.) is a freelance photographer who doggedly pursues celebrities to take candid pictures but I’m using it here to mean general devious Press honey-traps too..
2**. “We never win nothing” (Sorry Literary Standards out there).
3.*** “The World Cup 2018 is awarded to England….” (yeah right)
er sorry …i mean Russia…er sorry i mean Spain and Portugal..
Please retire Sepp.. and don’t get me going on goal-line technology..
