The Panoramic View of World Cup Bids

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 listen up dream on
don’t hold your breath
Simon Cowell’s thumbs up
could be kiss of death
look beyond the spectacles
and rose tinted view
We’ll be shunned and I’ll be stunned
if England’s bid comes through

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Bobby Moore and sixty six
unity and stuff
when it comes to football fever
don’t we have enough?
beyond the Panoramic view
our hospitals and schools
still lag behind a bid to those
who clearly flaunt the rules

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 you talk of pride and passion
the wave a win would usher
they’ll dance tonight in Red Square
when Sepp announces Russia


Hope I’m wrong…but something’s afoot…and who’s Putin it in?
Written for and Read today Thursday 2nd Dec at 1.40pm ..on BBC Three Counties Radio.
