Rainbow nations – 2010 – World cup draw

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Doe eyed nations wide awake
All barring dozing Wayne sleep
Did you feel the rapidity, the drum beats?
Uniting nations with the victory leap

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Behold the routine ooh! aah!
Sunbeams from Charlize Theron
Glitter pageant all over in a blink
Flash! And then it was gone

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Slovenia fiddles for old Uncle Sam
Cape Town for the English clan
Algeria will brawl and jinx so many
With Al Majid the Boughera man

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Silky Uruguay far from Forlan
Joburg hosts the Bafana campaign
Mexico will enchant Rustenburg
Boo Blues wedged in Blomfontein

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Argentina will keep things Messi
Diego Armando Maradona
Polowane Nigerians and Koreans relish
Juicy Greek Doners a goner

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Serbia and Ghana on the prowl
Oz and Germans unite Pour Homme
This isn’t the Shepherd’s Bush Loftus
With not a whiff of a single Pom

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Double Dutch Danes living it large
Liverpool will set loose Ryan
Japan look set to puncture the ball
Beware the indomitable lion

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The all Blacks inhabit Cape Town
All rise for the grand Azurri
Skrtel’s Slovak snarl matched
By blood and glory from Roque

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Brazil’s Copacabana outshone
Nelson Mandela’s Bay say’s hello
Korea a blip on Drogba’s Coast
Ronaldo will surpass Eusebio

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Matadors grace Port Elizabeth
Fabregas will slay El Toro
Swiss may find play rather chile
Honduras to go home on the morrow
Shortly we’ll all be in Gold city
Rolling up from Alaska to Perth
World in Mandela’s banquet hall
Roll on the greatest show on earth
