The Lyrics

Just after the whistle blew, I had to pick up my daughter.. and this song was on the stereo in the car. Seemed very appropriate, somehow, as possibly the most inept defensive display from an England team gifted four goals to a really not-that-impressive Germany.
Another World Cup's over
And I'm left cold sober
As England lose 4-1 (though they scored two)
I'm not gonna bitch about it
Won't complain about it
Gonna get intoxicated drinking Special Brew

But.. John ****ing Terry?
Barry?
Gave me that sinking feeling
And Matthew Upson at all time low -
Capello-wo
So grotesquely
Brought on Emile Heskey
Was that ever worthwhile?
Were they just tired? 'cause they just couldn't be arsed
Gerrard and Rooney
And Glen Johnson looking like a great buffoon

Dismay all across the nation
From this capitulation
There isn't an excuse
For the crap that they produced
I reckon he's yellow:
Fabio Capello
Gave us
World Cup folly blues

[Solo - David James as the only one playing well]

A pathetic demonstration
'Gainst German occupation
All over the news
Who thought we'd lose - took us to the cleaners
We were playing like wieners
We've all got
World Cup folly blues

A pathetic demonstration
'Gainst German occupation
All over the news
Who thought we'd lose - took us to the cleaners
..come on Argentina
We've all got
World Cup folly blues

Great work. Don't know too much of the soccer game with England against Germany, but from what I read, that was too bad that England suffered a great loss against Germany. It may be the World Cup Folly Blues, but you scored 555 goals for this one!
